Adam first alerted me to the Sundance Films in competition in 2007. Adam specificly noted the documentary For The Bible Tells Me So, directed by Daniel Karslake which tells the story of five conservative Christian families, dealing significantly with how they use the bible to "stigmatizing the gay community and eroding the separation between church and state."
Is this 2007's Jesus Camp II? Actually, from the heavy handed language, it sounds a little more bias then the Jesus Camp documentarians.
Peter Chattaway sorted through the list to find the other films that obviously deal with religion that will be premiering at Sundance. The other films, a drama about a devout Christian girl with a unique physical advantage called "Teeth", a Russian film about an odd monk, and a film from Denmark about an 82-year-old virgin and a nun.
Also controversial and untitled Dokota Fanning film (which I thought was called Hounddog) where Fanning deals with abuse through the music of Elvis, will also have it's world wide premier at Sundance.
