Oct 11. Jesus Camp

Jesus Camp – USA – 2006 – Documentary.  Anyone seeking an understanding of  Trump supporters who seem immune to “the Truth” need to see this movie.  Although it was made during George Bush’s presidency, it is even more relevant today.  “No matter your religious or political affiliation (or lack thereof), this supremely even-handed documentary from Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady is cinematic dynamite.”-Philadelphia Enquirer   “On one level, the documentary Jesus Camp is all about evangelical Christians keeping up with the terrorists.”-Seattle Times.  “What (directors) Ewing and Grady have accomplished here is remarkable — capturing the visceral humanity, desire and unflagging political will of a religious movement. “-Chicago Tribune.   “A frightening, infuriating, yet profoundly compassionate documentary about the indoctrination of children by the Evangelical right.”-New York Magazine.  Jesus Camp follows Rachel, Levi, and Tory to Pastor Becky Fisher’s “Kids on Fire” summer camp in Devil’s Lake, North Dakota, where kids are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in “God’s Army.”  The film follows these children at camp as they hone their “prophetic gifts” and are schooled in how to “take back America for Christ.”
