Killing Faith is written and directed by Ned Crowley and stars Guy Pierce, Dewanda Wise, and Tim Roth
Zori Davidkova and Wes Hager will be the producers for Choice Films while on location in Santa Fe.
Killing Faith takes place in the summer of 1859. A widowed physician reluctantly agrees to take a recently freed slave and her mysterious Caucasian daughter on a 5-day journey through the West to find a Faith Healer in a distant town.
The woman believes her daughter is possessed; the doctor believes she carries The Sickness. Either way, the fact remains that every living thing the girl touches mysteriously dies.
According to the Santa Fe Film Office, the production will employ over 100 New Mexicans, approximately 45 as background talent, 60 resident crew members, and five principal actors.
