jesus camp

momcat2 and i just watched Jesus Camp which is freaking amazing -- it's one of the best doccumentaries i've ever seen. following a group of children as they go to an evangelical christan camp, with words of encouragement from their parents, their religious leaders -- i really admire how neutral the film is. it's filled with very compelling, three dimensional characters, especially the kids whose present a depth of yearning and devotion which is at the same time horrifying and uplifting. i was glued to the screen. momcat2 was glued to the sofa.

put it in your netflix que, folks, you won't be dissapointed.


on a related note -- a photo from my trip across america this summer of a gigantic cross on the side of the road....




edit: check out the trailer for the movie:
