Theirs is the Kingdom
Director: Chris Zaluski
Assistant Editor: Andrew Austin

Theirs is the Kingdom is a feature-length documentary that follows the rare creation of a contemporary fresco mural inside the sanctuary of a small church in Asheville, NC.  This is a painting not of the rich and powerful, but of people battling homelessness, addiction, and mental illness.  From first sketch to final unveiling, the viewer witnesses the difficulties of this ancient artistic technique while also meeting an ensemble cast of complex characters.

In addition to serving as Assistant Editor on this film, I designed the offical poster using elements of Christopher Holt’s fresco.
