“The Corruption of Divine Providence” Interview | Writer, Director Jeremy Torrie | The Filmcraziest Show

The Corruption of Divine Providence is one of the strangest films I’ve seen in some time, and in this film’s case, that’s just a compliment to its ambitious world building. It follows the Séraphin family in the fictional, bilingual town of St-Michel, Manitoba, as the youngest daughter, Jeanne (Ali Skovbye), is nearly killed by a mysterious bleeding and is rushed to the hospital. That’s the jumping point for a film with near-exorcism, characters questioning their faith, and the town believing Jeanne is a miracle as everyone vies to figure out what’s happening. The film also stars Elyse Levesque, Tantoo Cardinal, Cory Sevier, David La Haye and Paul Amos, and is written and directed by Jeremy Torrie.  Jeremy Torrie was my guest on this episode of my podcast The Filmcraziest Show, where we chat some influences, originally wanting to make a miniseries, the world building and filming in Manitoba, and much more.
