Passion of the Cistulli (2011)

The widely-acclaimed winner of the 2011 Moonslouch Film Festival (documentary short subject), Passion of the Cistulli is a gripping account of Cistulli’s Passion of April 17, 2011, when, from 3:30 to 3:52 PM, he lost wi-fi connectivity and realized his fridge was empty of beer (—what Cistulli fittingly calls “a liquid version of the internet”). While lacking in redemption or forgiveness of sins, Passion of the Cistulli does have its own resurrection: a worn and forlorn Cistulli travels, on foot, to a nearby Bruegger’s, where he finds both free wi-fi and a barista with a “vivifying, life-affirming rack.”
