Jennie Spohr is wrapping up an impressive endeavor over at Seattle’s University Presbyterian Church. The film festival she hosted, entitled “Dreams of Our Childhood,” inspired quite a few moviegoers to look at films with greater discernment, to appreciate more fully the possibilities and the power of big screen art.

Thanks, Jennie, for your hard work. It was exciting to see people gathering in a church to discuss the rich veins of truth and beauty in films like Born into Brothels, films that many churchgoers would ignore, consider too volatile, or judge irrelevant. You’re a brave and creative soul. Keep it up!

I felt out of my league sitting on the two Born into Brothels discussion panels, next to guests who do a whole lot more than just sit around and write about movies. It was a privilege, a pleasure, and a chance for me to learn a lot more about a film I already love.
