Mike Ryan – producer – Free in Deed
Fred Film Radio has the pleasure to talk to Mike Ryan, producer of FREE IN DEED, competing here in Venice in the Orizzonti section. Firmly believing in daring and intelligent filmmaking, Mr Ryan unveils his personal approach as a producer, with the hope that Cinema will always stay ‘physical’.
FREE IN DEED: Set in the distinctive world of storefront churches, and based on actual events, Free in Deed depicts one man’s attempts to perform a miracle. When a single mother brings her young boy to church for healing, this lonely pentecostal minister is forced to confront the seemingly incurable illness of the child… and his own demons as well. The more he prays, the more things seem to spiral out of his control.
