> DESCRIPTION

Gravity and Grace (70 mins, 1995). A drama exploring parallel lives and UFO cult, Krauss unravels with charm and complexity the forces that drive us to excessive belief and millennialism. Shot both in New Zealand and New York City, the film is also about girlfriends: Grace, the beautiful Maori, and Gravity, who was driven, though to nothing in particular. Thematically, this film explores the complicated responses of intelligent people to the need for faith.

Followed by a Q&A with Chris Kraus
