Synopsis by Mark Deming
Many people wish they could see into the future, but Scott Morgan's documentary Hand Of Fate examines six individuals who claim to actually possess powers of clairvoyance. Subjects include a scientist from India, a New Yorker who claims to have been a psychic consultant for John Lennon and Grace Kelly, and a South African who has been made an outcast for holding "the unbearable burden of seeing the future." Hand Of Faith neither supports nor debunks the claims of its protagonists, allowing them to present their own stories. The film also features an original song from popular singer/songwriter Tori Amos.
