Film Synopsis: “Two Musicians. One City. Two vastly different experiences. One never-changing God. BETWEEN MERCY AND ME is a musical journey into the hearts of unexpected friends Hugo and Mercy, who struggle to find a connection and hope for their hurting community … and themselves.
As his community begins to shudder under the impact of gentrification and tragedy, Hugo sinks into the emotional circumstances of the world around him. His pastor challenges him to produce new music, something a bit more inspirational, in hopes of uplifting the congregation. Facing writer’s block in his sanctuary, he opts to visit the new and improved neighborhood coffee shop where he encounters Mercy. A jubilant and extraverted fellow musician, Mercy offers to join Hugo in his song writing efforts. As their relationship grows, they are surprised by the reactions from their communities, friends and their own families. Hugo and Mercy, determined to not let hard conversations or tension keep them from being together, set out to create space for honest conversations and work towards unification in their community, challenging biases seen and unseen, often unspoken. One evening, their relationship is rocked by a routine traffic stop causing them to come face to face their own internal narratives and beliefs. Will they choose to wear vulnerability with one another or move apart with hard hearts affirming the very biases that they worked so hard to obliterate?”
Don’t miss out on this extraordinary experience. Grab your friends and family, and join us at GIFF Presents: Between Mercy And Me for an interactive evening of the film, followed by a Q&A with the Director, Craig Brown.
