Hip Priest

Known to his flock as 'Priest', a free-spirited priest is a simple man on the surface. He drinks, he smokes, he's puts one foot in front of the other, day in and day out. But behind the white collar is a human being who hurts, and who loves. A purveyor of empathy and a pillar of conviction, he adheres to a personal code of living with all that he is or knows. A warm glowing light in an often dark and cruel world. Throughout his day, he finds rhythm and purpose behind his actions and their effects on the neighborhood he inhabits. At the center of this world is Priest's 'bible', a self-made collection of words and images that have molded the energy inside him, which he dreams of sharing with the world. Ideas and anthems that have moved him and helped guide him through the hard edged days of life.

REVIEW
“... “Hip Priest” is, quite honestly, an incredible short film......I loved the choices in the way the film looks, what is said (or read) by the priest and especially the soundtrack........As you might guess, “Hip Priest” really won me over ...”
