Provocative – to those who believe that indigenous people in the rainforest live in a sort of paradise where peace and harmony reign.
Unsettling – to Christians who discount the existence of the spiritual world (either willfully or by their practices).
Encouraging – to those who know struggles for inner peace and answers to their questions of ‘who is in control’ in the universe.
This is what we want to be to our audiences at the screenings tonight and tomorrow afternoon at the Starz FilmCenter in Denver. I know some in the audience will be Christians who bring their own points of view to the screening – generally favorable to the message of Bautista’s story we tell in The Enemy God. I know many in the audience will not be Christian, and may even be antagonistic to the claims of Jesus. But our experience is that even those people find something to think more deeply about in our film.
There will be conversations tonight. That’s a good purpose for art.
Holy Spirit, go ahead of us and be present among us.
