We will forget

13 minutes

What happens when the Rapture fails to come as scheduled?

Robert Fitzpatrick was a follower of the late radio evangelist Harold Camping, and he spent $140,000 of his own money warning New Yorkers of the impending Rapture. We Will Forget documents Fitzpatrick’s journey to Times Square on his predicted doomsday, where he awaits the end of the world amid just a few fellow believers, and an onslaught of cameras, reporters and amused onlookers. Crafted with sympathy, the US filmmaker Garret Harkawik’s portrait of Fitzpatrick is an engrossing and affecting glimpse of the strange moment when misplaced certainty meets reality.
