In person: Director Bill Jersey
Called a "glowing beauty" by the New York Times, this rarely screened Academy-Award nominated documentary from 1967 is a landmark of the cinema verite movement. When an idealist Lutheran pastor in Omaha, Nebraska asks his all-white congregation to reach out to black Lutherans, it sends shock waves through the church. The film was originally rejected by major networks for being too controversial. Today it's as stirring as ever. Co-presented by the Silverdocs Film Festival. Meet Silverdocs Director of Programming Sky Sitney. Tickets are $15.
