2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Titus Kaphar’s Exhibiting Forgiveness

2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Titus Kaphar’s Exhibiting Forgiveness

They say write what you know and perhaps there will be a lot of truth to the journey that is Exhibiting Forgiveness by first time filmmaker Titus Kaphar. While it’s uncommon, it’s not entirely implausible for a feature debut that was filmed just this summer to secure a spot at the festival. Exhibiting Forgiveness went into production in June with André Holland and Andra Day topping.

Gist: Tarrell, a renowned painter who rose from an impoverished past, must confront his once highly abusive addict father, La’Ron, after 15 years of distance between them. Although La’Ron claims to have been reformed by his new relationship with Christ, their reconnection stirs up buried trauma, launching Tarrell into incendiary anxiety, and sending destructive shockwaves through the family. Tarrell must decide if he’s able to forgive, or if he will cut off his father forever.

Production Co./Producers: Stephanie Allain – Jamie Patricof – Derek Cianfrance.

Prediction: U.S. Dramatic Competition.

Sales: TBD.
