MORMON MOVIE (work-in-progress) First Look
While browsing kickstarter today to deem who's worthy of some of my hard earned cash for a new and nifty idea -I run across this:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/XanA...first-look

A movie that I instantly connect with. A former Mormon documentary. Looks interesting and seems like the producer is well capable of pulling it off. I'd like to see it happen so I plan to donate to the project. I'm debating on weather or not I should share it on my FB wall? Since the rest of my family are still active and some from the Mexican colonies, I wonder what their reaction will be? It looks like it will be made largely from the directors personal past in the church. She describes herself as a former Mormon yet it doesn't feel like she's overtly anti-Mormon. Not sure what her overall take is going to be but I'd like to see it when completed.

"Inspired by religious educational films her mother starred in while a student at Brigham Young University during the 1960s, director Xan Aranda (Andrew Bird: Fever Year) revisits her ancestral religion through the lens of two classics: a black-and-white Western portraying an historic clash between Mormon colonists and Pancho Villa in Mexico, and a jewel-toned yet tragic cautionary tale about marriage and doubt. As deeper threads of “LDS” beliefs are revealed, Xan explores the controversially clean-cut community she left behind – and her family’s spiritual fate beyond death."

Documentary in production with Kartemquin Films. Estimated release: 2014. Estimated length: 80 min.

So its 2 hours of people dressed in a shirt and tie going door to door asking if they've heard about Jesus?

Behold the power of the force!

Didn't the south park guys do something like that already?

I'm hoping Xan's documentary will be a critique of old Mormon indoctrination films. It's obviously a personal story too given that her mother was in some of those films.

Maybe something a little less harsh than this:

It looks interesting, sadly my humourous side had me laughing a dim a dozen at that "measure of a man" short film commentary and unfortunately I would normally opt for that.

You might be thinking of the Amish.
