Thy Kingdom Come

United States / 2018 / 42 minutes / NR

Thy Kingdom Come — a collaboration between photographer/filmmaker Eugene Richards and actor/producer Javier Bardem — was conceived of following the filming of Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder. As part of that production’s “third unit,” Richards introduced Bardem, who was portraying a parish priest in Malick’s film, to the real-life residents of a small Oklahoma town. What had been intended as brief episodes for inclusion in the feature film grew in scope as the townspeople, wholly aware that he was a fictional priest, chose to share personal details of their lives. Filmed in a dozen homes, a trailer park, a county jail, and a local nursing facility, Thy Kingdom Come is a melding of truth and fiction in which unscripted conversations, shot by Richards in beautiful widescreen, come to reveal the complexity of life in this small oil town.
