Kathleen Barbini, an independent filmmaker, sent along this notice for Gifthub readers:
FOR JESUS, produced by KB Films in association with The International Documentary Association, and shot by Academy Award winning cinematographer, Tom Horowitz, is an independent documentary currently in production. This cinema verite exploration and fresh look at Christianity in America, is a probing quest for the revolutionary teachings of Jesus within the diverging, polarized,and sometimes disturbing expressions of Christianity today. By probing and exploring the lives of the religious right,conservative and liberal Christians,the documentary will explore how their diverging interpretations of the Bible impact both our Christian, political, and general culture. We'll also discover a phenomenon in the United States --the arising movement of unchurched revolutionary Christians -- those revolting against Christian fundamentalism, hypocrisy and stagnant Church life, and striving for a life reminiscent of early followers of Christ.
Gifthub does not get in the middle of any financial transactions, gifts or otherwise. But those seeking to learn more or to make a contribution to these independent film-makers can go to ThirteenthDisciple.com. Sounds like a very interesting topic. The thirteenth disciple was Judas? And from that betrayal what Passion, Resurrection, and Redemption has the Hidden Hand of God stored up? A fertile topic for a film-maker with courage and tact, or just courage. I await the first showing here in Dallas.
