SPOTLIGHT

Director Curtis Graham
Growing up as a kid I always enjoyed reading biographies over novels. I was always fascinated with learning what makes people who they are. That's probably why I am attracted to films based on true stories. The truth is always stranger than fiction. With that said, The Investigator was a story I could really get into.
     You may or may not know that all films have a "moral premise". The human condition has always been the conflict between "Good & Evil"--a moral dilemma. Good stories, good films know how to tap that conflict. They are able to allow the audience to identify with the characters, struggles and challenges and how they overcame the odds. It is a very Spiritual thing! That is why I always question the term "faith based". All films are faith based. To have a hero pray to God or Jesus makes it a "faith based film"? Is Life of Pi not a faith based film? Is Lincoln not a "faith based film"? Is Flight? All show how an individual struggles spiritually with a moral dilemma.  Yet they are not considered "faith based".  The Investigator is a film that fits the same mold as these. I love this story because it taps all of our own doubts and frustrations. Doubts of faith, questions about our own circumstances in life!  Why God? Why me? Are you really there? We all ask the same universal questions. My job as Director is to allow the audience to feel what that character is going through; to put the audience in the character’s place. From there we can realize that we share some of the same struggles in life. We leave the theater knowing we are not alone in our feelings. It is always encouraging to know how an individual overcame the odds against them. We leave the film satisfied in the spiritual journey we shared with the character! 
     Many of the classic great films of the past if they were released today would be classified as "faith based". Odd isn't it?
