RESURRECTING HASSAN
de Carlo Guillermo Proto

 

Resurrecting Hassan is an incredibly moving story about a blind family of three who sing in the metro and live autonomously in the working class neighbourhood of Montreal's east end. Having lost their only sighted child Hassan in a tragic drowning accident 13 years ago, the Harting family have since turned to the teachings of Russian mystic Grigori Grabovoi with the determination to resurrect their son from the dead. Resurrecting Hassan is an exploration of a blind family of three's legacy of grief, tragedy and abuse as we follow them on their path to self-redemption.
