Following Films Podcast: Kevin Corrigan on SCENES FROM AN EMPTY CHURCH



Today I’m joined by legendary character actor Kevin Corrigan to discuss his latest film SCENES FROM AN EMPTY CHURCH. You might know Kevin from his work in GOODFELLAS, TRUE ROMANCE, THE DEPARTED, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, and the woefully underrated RESULTS.

SCENES FROM AN EMPTY CHURCH takes place in NYC at the height of the pandemic and focuses on two priests who open their church doors to those seeking salvation during the most isolating of times. From the commonplace to the truly metaphysical, their visitors reflect the full spectrum of personal crises of spirituality. Throughout their encounters with the city's sweetest, wildest and weirdest, the two priests learn the importance of connection, empathy, and open-mindedness. 


While the film takes place in the pandemic, it's not ABOUT the pandemic. It's about asking questions and listening, it's about the importance of fellowship in difficult times. The characters in the film wrestle with universal questions that we have been asking since our earliest days. In that way, I feel like SCENES FROM AN EMPTY CHURCH will be the kind of film that audiences will discover for years to come. 


SCENES FROM AN EMPTY CHURCH will be in theatres and VOD on Friday July 2nd.
