Student Filmmakers to Screen Documentary Featuring Burlington Deacon on April 17
BURLINGTON, VT – A group of four young women, student filmmakers from Burlington High School, received some funding from the Cathedral Church of St. Paul’s Jubilee Committee last year. The documentary team is made up of Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and LGBTQ members. Their film includes interviews with Deacon Stannard Baker about religion and diversity, the role of doubt in religion, and other subjects. Their work was shown at The Vermont Film Festival in March and was well received. Four documentary shorts from this project will be shown on Tuesday, April 17, at 6:30 PM at The First Methodist Church, 21 Buell Street, Burlington (corner of Buell Street and North Winooski Avenue). Baker will be in attendance, and all people of the Diocese are welcome to participate.
This is from the website: “Conversations From the Open Road is a road-trip to experience our world in a meaningful way. We are a student and citizen-journalism, media crew probing the challenging issues and individual stories in our communities. We hit the road as strangers and return bonded by the shared compassion for all whom we meet along the way and a deeper understanding of the struggles in our world. It’s a road trip in the truest sense of the word: we thrive in the unknown and have little interest in indulging in the luxuries of tourism, but instead seek camaraderie and fellowship with lots of other humans on this crazy journey through life at this moment.”
