Director(s): Heidi Ewing, Rachel Grady. 87 min. Rated PG-13. Documentary.
Watching this Oscar-nominated documentary was the strangest experience. No, not because it perplexes you how kids' minds are molested, indoctrinating them into an Evangelical brainwashing boot camp; but because save for some creepy soundtrack music, there's almost no intervention by the filmmakers (in terms of narration) to show how evil the events are. They just use evocative camera angles, ominous close-ups, and suggestive editing techniques such as juxtaposed sequences, to give an aura of evil throughout the film. And the ironic part is, Evangelicals are probably proud how truthfully they've been presented here. The magic of (unilateral) documentary film-making.
PS: Thank you, Shahriar, for the recommendation.
