I saw this in June 2003 at SILVERDOCS, the AFI documentary film festival held annually in Silver Spring, MD, just outside of DC. The film was, I believe, funded by PBS, and the director, David Petersen, was given permission to show it here prior to broadcast, since it was of local interest - the church is just a few miles from AFI.
While introducing the film, the director said that making it changed his life, and he hoped that watching it would change ours. In my case it did. I've been a movie maniac all of my life, but few films have affected me as this one has.
I hope that when PBS airs the film it will give it plenty of publicity, and its viewed by many. But those of us who attended SILVERDOCS had an added bonus. Church members were present to discuss the film afterward. And they are a memorable group.
