FAITH’S WORLD is an official selection of the RICHMOND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. 16-year-old Faith Guilbault from Baltimore, Maryland loves skydiving, horseback riding and has walked the runway at Fashion Week in New York City. She is also one of 61 million people in the United States living with a disability. Guilbault is visually impaired and has cerebral palsy, which affects her ability to move and maintain balance and posture, yet she does not want anyone to feel sorry for her. She is resilient, hard-working and determined to realize her dreams. With guidance from filmmaker Joyce Chopra, Guilbault shines light on her world, inviting viewers to focus on the similarities rather than differences between people living with and without a disability.
The Richmond International Film Festival (RIFF) screens more than 125 international cutting edge films, making it one of the Mid-Atlantic’s largest international competitive festivals. The festival will run September 7-12, 2021
