Katie Stagliano, a young girl in South Carolina, Narayanan Krishnan, a chef in India, and Allan Law, a retired schoolteacher in Minnesota, are to all appearances “ordinary” people with an extraordinary zeal for ending hunger. Katie’s efforts are channeled through gardening and her “Katie’s Krops” nonprofit. Krishnan gave up his career as a chef to make and serve meals – sometimes feeding by hand – to the many homeless residents of his city. Allen goes without sleep, ignoring his own health issues, to provide food and bus tokens throughout the nights in Minneapolis. The film provides an extensive view of their experiences working with homeless people on a daily (or nightly) basis, with repeated references to the “ripple effect” their examples provide in inspiring others who may be initially dismayed by the scope of the problems. There is an overreliance on personal accolades in this film, however, which merited though they are become somewhat tedious to the viewer after a time. Perhaps some judicious paring down of the film’s length might have avoided that issue. Still the documentary should serve a useful role among community and faith-based audiences looking for inspiration.\" - Educational Media Review Online \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e","published_at":"2015-07-15T14:15:00-07:00","created_at":"2015-06-30T15:27:04-07:00","vendor":"Jesse Roesler","type":"DVD","tags":["new","Public Library License"],"price":4999,"price_min":4999,"price_max":29500,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":3383659396,"title":"University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","option1":"University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"SFT-U","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"The Starfish Throwers (educational) -

Katie Stagliano, a young girl in South Carolina, Narayanan Krishnan, a chef in India, and Allan Law, a retired schoolteacher in Minnesota, are to all appearances “ordinary” people with an extraordinary zeal for ending hunger. Katie’s efforts are channeled through gardening and her “Katie’s Krops” nonprofit. Krishnan gave up his career as a chef to make and serve meals – sometimes feeding by hand – to the many homeless residents of his city. Allen goes without sleep, ignoring his own health issues, to provide food and bus tokens throughout the nights in Minneapolis. The film provides an extensive view of their experiences working with homeless people on a daily (or nightly) basis, with repeated references to the “ripple effect” their examples provide in inspiring others who may be initially dismayed by the scope of the problems. There is an overreliance on personal accolades in this film, however, which merited though they are become somewhat tedious to the viewer after a time. Perhaps some judicious paring down of the film’s length might have avoided that issue. Still the documentary should serve a useful role among community and faith-based audiences looking for inspiration.\" - Educational Media Review Online \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}

It is considered to be the worst manmade environmental disaster in U.S. history. Grand Isle, the last inhabited barrier island off the coast of Louisiana, sits 100 miles from the Deepwater Horizon site, and its inhabitants are entirely dependent on the surrounding water for their livelihood. Once Deepwater oil made its way to Grand Isle, it decimated everything it touched -- and that was just the beginning. Filmmaker Juliet Brown's powerful documentary Ecocide chronicles the short- and long-term effects of the Deepwater spill on the Grand Isle's people and environment: wildlife dying or suffering from mutations from the oil and the chemical dispersant used during cleanup; commerce disrupted due to trawlers being unable to fish sullied water; tourist dollars lost; and a population slowly succumbing to health conditions related to the spill. The film ironically balances these sad facts with BP and local, state, and federal claims that the cleanup was successful and crisis eliminated. To further drive home the message, images of water, shorelines, and wildlife destroyed by thick black oil sludge and a community slowly falling apart are juxtaposed with notably sparse scenes of vacationing beach goers after the island has supposedly received a clean bill of health. Ecocide successfully illustrates how willful ignorance continues the damage begun by the oil spill. Extras include a featurette on efforts to make ecocide an international crime.

They use the year of travel to exchange natural seeds, songs, and ideas about new ways of relating to the land.  Moving stories from landless peasants, indigenous communities, and small farmers inform the travelers and viewers, expanding their understanding of the struggle to survive in the face of global agribusiness incursion and the takeover of monocrops for making biofuel. Peer into the lives of Inacio and Ivania, who are farmers, poets, musicians, parents, and activists for ecological and social justice. They seek to gather and disseminate thousands of seeds, a wealth of knowledge, and contribute to an invaluable network amongst small agricultural communities of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina, all without the use of oil or biofuels. With practically no money and no support crew, the cyclists rely entirely on their resourcefulness and the solidarity of people they meet along the way.

Cameras follow several representative families in weakening income brackets, whose breadwinners have lost jobs to overseas, suffered cuts in benefits, and are now left slaving for the minimum wage—when they can find jobs at all. One woman is newly widowed, experiencing her first winter with her son in a homeless shelter. Another household has to choose between paying the mortgage or utilities bills (a good neighbor allows them to run an electrical cord all the way to his property). A man whose son has Down syndrome faces foreclosure on a homestead that he says brings the boy stability. Another couple, turned out of their own place, must move back in with parents. While some social-service organizations offer relief, one pastor interviewed here declares that he has never seen so many new needy with so few safety nets. Occasional intertitles offer statistics on corporate job-killing practices and the pernicious decay of the middle-class, but policy-makers and apologists for Wall Street are conspicuous by their absence. A powerful, timely documentary, this is highly recommended. Aud: C, P. (C.

Cameras follow several representative families in weakening income brackets, whose breadwinners have lost jobs to overseas, suffered cuts in benefits, and are now left slaving for the minimum wage—when they can find jobs at all. One woman is newly widowed, experiencing her first winter with her son in a homeless shelter. Another household has to choose between paying the mortgage or utilities bills (a good neighbor allows them to run an electrical cord all the way to his property). A man whose son has Down syndrome faces foreclosure on a homestead that he says brings the boy stability. Another couple, turned out of their own place, must move back in with parents. While some social-service organizations offer relief, one pastor interviewed here declares that he has never seen so many new needy with so few safety nets. Occasional intertitles offer statistics on corporate job-killing practices and the pernicious decay of the middle-class, but policy-makers and apologists for Wall Street are conspicuous by their absence. A powerful, timely documentary, this is highly recommended. Aud: C, P. (C. Cassady)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e"}

Ndomo's life has been scarred by exploitation and mistreatment at the hands of those who would ride on the coattails of his talent. Trafficked to France as a teenager with promises to him and his family of riches beyond their imaginations, he was promptly abandoned in the streets of Paris. Despite this, Ndomo's story is one of inspiration as, fighting against all the odds, he manages to find a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. Kermit has risen from humble beginnings to a great height, signing a professional contract at 18 with Feyenoord in the Dutch league. His example is one of success brought about through the stable domestic system that exists in the World Cup host country. The story that unfolds around these two young men reveals the struggle that is life in much of Africa and demonstrates how football is a vital lifeline to which many will desperately cling.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/12133732?badge=0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/12133732\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eSoka Afrika - Trailer 1\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/user3903453\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eMasnomis\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner of Best Film\u003c\/b\u003e (Golden Whistle), K\u0026amp;S Film Festival New York (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner Best Picture\u003c\/b\u003e, Palermo International Sports Film Festival (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eShortlisted Best Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, One World Media (2012)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e(Nominated for Best Foreign Film, Best Editing, and Best Sound Mix at Palermo International Sports Film Festival)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Soka Afrika beautifully captures the harsh reality that can turn colourful dreams into dark nightmares\" \u003cb\u003e- \u003cb\u003eESPN \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“Football trafficking is a serious issue which not many people are aware of.

Ndomo's life has been scarred by exploitation and mistreatment at the hands of those who would ride on the coattails of his talent. Trafficked to France as a teenager with promises to him and his family of riches beyond their imaginations, he was promptly abandoned in the streets of Paris. Despite this, Ndomo's story is one of inspiration as, fighting against all the odds, he manages to find a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. Kermit has risen from humble beginnings to a great height, signing a professional contract at 18 with Feyenoord in the Dutch league. His example is one of success brought about through the stable domestic system that exists in the World Cup host country. The story that unfolds around these two young men reveals the struggle that is life in much of Africa and demonstrates how football is a vital lifeline to which many will desperately cling.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/12133732?badge=0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/12133732\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eSoka Afrika - Trailer 1\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/user3903453\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eMasnomis\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner of Best Film\u003c\/b\u003e (Golden Whistle), K\u0026amp;S Film Festival New York (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner Best Picture\u003c\/b\u003e, Palermo International Sports Film Festival (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eShortlisted Best Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, One World Media (2012)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e(Nominated for Best Foreign Film, Best Editing, and Best Sound Mix at Palermo International Sports Film Festival)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Soka Afrika beautifully captures the harsh reality that can turn colourful dreams into dark nightmares\" \u003cb\u003e- \u003cb\u003eESPN \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“Football trafficking is a serious issue which not many people are aware of.

Ten years ago, Yousef left his wife and three small children in Palestine to start a new life for them all in San Francisco. For the past decade he has worked day and night to build a small business, save money, and become part of his adopted community while still trying to stay connected from afar. The film profiles Yousef’s life in San Francisco and the challenges of the immigration process for his family. It then follows his journey back to his fractured homeland to finally reunite with his wife and kids. But a lot has changed, and Yousef must confront the current realities in both his family and his country and decide if a new life in America is really still the right path for them to take. \u003cb\u003eCORNER STORE\u003c\/b\u003e faithfully documents Yosuef’s resoundingly universal tale of hard won choices for a better life, now set on the back drop of San Francisco and modern-day Palestine. Compelling and emotionally-engaging, the film is a story about community relationships, cultural understanding, immigration, and the politics of living in an occupied territory. Even more, the film is about family, the sacrifices people make for each other, and the deep connections that bind us all together.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59944664\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Starz Denver Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Big Sky Documentary Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWINNER of Audience Award Best Documentary Feature- San Fransisco Indiefest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- St. Louis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\/ Reviews\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Corner Store is a sincere film that students respond to.  Its intimate view of a family's struggle to immigrate to the United States provides students with an honest look in to the immigration process.  Students are engaged through this film and discussions about the film are complex and stimulate the desire to look further into the subject.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e-Scott Pettit, Social Sciences Teacher, Summit Academy High School\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A moving insight into one man’s struggle to reconcile the kinship he feels for his adopted Bay Area home with his Middle Eastern roots.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e -

Ten years ago, Yousef left his wife and three small children in Palestine to start a new life for them all in San Francisco. For the past decade he has worked day and night to build a small business, save money, and become part of his adopted community while still trying to stay connected from afar. The film profiles Yousef’s life in San Francisco and the challenges of the immigration process for his family. It then follows his journey back to his fractured homeland to finally reunite with his wife and kids.

Even more, the film is about family, the sacrifices people make for each other, and the deep connections that bind us all together.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59944664\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Starz Denver Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Big Sky Documentary Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWINNER of Audience Award Best Documentary Feature- San Fransisco Indiefest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- St. Louis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\/ Reviews\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Corner Store is a sincere film that students respond to.  Its intimate view of a family's struggle to immigrate to the United States provides students with an honest look in to the immigration process.  Students are engaged through this film and discussions about the film are complex and stimulate the desire to look further into the subject.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e-Scott Pettit, Social Sciences Teacher, Summit Academy High School\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A moving insight into one man’s struggle to reconcile the kinship he feels for his adopted Bay Area home with his Middle Eastern roots.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - New York Times\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Yet it is home, and what home actually means to us is the insistent heart of Bruens' quietly powerful film.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - The San Francisco Chronicle\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Corner Store is a remarkable achievement of documentary filmmaking; immortalizing the everyday to express a facet of human life.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - Bay Area Guardian\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Bruens’ Corner Store... refrains from making Elhaj’s struggle into melting pot boilerplate, presenting a remarkable portrait of hope kept alive under the duress of the quotidian.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - SF 360 \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Community, history, and love are the thematic strands running through the various frames of the locally made documentary “Corner Store.” \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - Beyond Chron\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “Bruens, without a trace of sentimentality, shows that Youssef and his family and their friends in Bethlehem are just like us.” \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e – Culture Vulture\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca title=\"stream-link\" target=\"_blank\" href=\"http:\/\/www.docuseek2.com\/ce-cns-es\" style=\"color: #000000;\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStream\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e"}

In contrast, Holly Hardman's documentary—set primarily in the Gulf Coast region—offers a relatively objective view of this demographic, exploring how self-identified fundamentalists preserve and maintain their faith in an increasingly secular society. For many of the men and women interviewed here, religion is the anchor that keeps them moored—especially in the aftermath of the 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which devastated communities and left many homeless. Most tap into their belief system for the strength and emotional clarity to move ahead with their lives. Admittedly, some behavior can be considered excessive, most notably the journey of a bearded gent who walks along the highways toting an oversized cross. And there are critics: one young man compares his fundamentalist upbringing to life in a Communist country; leaving home to join the Marines, he knew nothing of contemporary music and popular culture. But aside from a brief lapse into a negative consideration of the gay lifestyle, the outlook presented here is overwhelmingly positive and life-affirming...\u003cstrong\u003eHighly recommended.\" —Video Librarian\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“Hardman has bravely taken on one of the great American themes, religious ‘enthusiasm’ or fanaticism…Whether we can accept their world picture or not, Holly Hardman scrupulously avoids undercutting their best qualities…See this film, see it twice and more.

In contrast, Holly Hardman's documentary—set primarily in the Gulf Coast region—offers a relatively objective view of this demographic, exploring how self-identified fundamentalists preserve and maintain their faith in an increasingly secular society. For many of the men and women interviewed here, religion is the anchor that keeps them moored—especially in the aftermath of the 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which devastated communities and left many homeless. Most tap into their belief system for the strength and emotional clarity to move ahead with their lives. Admittedly, some behavior can be considered excessive, most notably the journey of a bearded gent who walks along the highways toting an oversized cross. And there are critics: one young man compares his fundamentalist upbringing to life in a Communist country; leaving home to join the Marines, he knew nothing of contemporary music and popular culture. But aside from a brief lapse into a negative consideration of the gay lifestyle, the outlook presented here is overwhelmingly positive and life-affirming...\u003cstrong\u003eHighly recommended.\" —Video Librarian\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“Hardman has bravely taken on one of the great American themes, religious ‘enthusiasm’ or fanaticism…Whether we can accept their world picture or not, Holly Hardman scrupulously avoids undercutting their best qualities…See this film, see it twice and more.

In and out of prison for more than 30 years, Omar and Pete are determined to change their lives. Upon release, both participate in the Maryland Reentry Program, which is designed to help long-term repeat offenders stay out of prison.
