Faith Healer is the story of an alleged healer, Jefferson Bull Fermor, who sat for two interviews of this documentary before unexpectedly fleeing. Shortly after his departure, the filmmakers found an old box, the contents of which offered them with a glimpse into his mysterious life. The film deconstructs the documentary form while searching for truth in a manipulative and illusory medium.
