March marks five years since Excel Entertainment released God?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Army in limited theatres in the United States. Certainly in the past five years a lot has happened in the LDS film industry, but are we any better off? Has LDS film become respected?
When we saw
Other Side of Heaven Charly in the theatre someone walked out as soon as the Mormon references emerged. Does that same sort of thing happen today? Are people going to see The Work and The Glory who are not Mormon?
Are we producing films simply for consumption, or are there though-provoking, well-written films being produced?
What is going to happen from now until March 2010?
