Jesus Camp

America is being born again


Jesus Camp
After all the media attention on hardline-religious people in the middle east, this documentary takes a look at what is probably the American version of the same. We follow three young kids, members of an evangelical church, as they attend a religious camp. They are fed theology non-stop, and are encouraged to do things which objective observers might think constitute brainwashing. However, the believers are happy with this film and don't see any problems.

84 minutes.

The Citizen
Matthew Dunbar quote iconThis frightening, heartbreaking film highlights the fact that children are not only physically vulnerable, but also ideologically and emotionally vulnerable, and that no cause is a good enough excuse to the shatter the sanctity of their delicate psyches.
16
BBC
Jamie Russell quote iconThis unabashedly liberal documentary tries to redress the balance by giving the rest of America a wake up call: not all scary fundamentalists come strapped with explosives.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconJesus Camp is worth seeing because of what it says, not because of how it looks, although it may be a better choice for TV viewing than an excursion to a theater.
