This edition of Popcorn Docs features JESUS CAMP (2006), the riveting Oscar-nominated feature from Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady:

"A growing number of Evangelical Christians believe there is a revival underway in America that requires Christian youth to assume leadership roles in advocating the causes of their religious movement. JESUS CAMP, directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, directors of the critically acclaimed The Boys of Baraka, follows Levi, Rachael, and Tory to Pastor Becky Fischer's "Kids on Fire" summer camp in Devil's Lake, North Dakota, where kids as young as 6 years-old 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." The film is a first-ever look into an intense training ground that recruits born-again Christian children to become an active part of America's political future." - (Synopsis from Magnolia Pictures website)

JESUS CAMP is available to watch on Netflix streaming and for rent on Amazon streaming. You should watch the film on your own ahead of time and then come to Popcorn Docs ready to discuss. Your co-hosts for this event will be Executive Director Erica Ginsberg and Programs Manager Andrea Passafiume.
