The Faithful is a feature length documentary exploring the enduring phenomenons of pop-icons Elvis Presley, Pope John Paul II, and Princess Diana. Over the course of a decade, the filmmaker journeys with fans and faithful on their pilgrimages to Graceland, Kensington Palace, and the Vatican. Before long, they lead her past the souvenirs, past the stereotypes and sound-bites, and into the heart of their global communities.
