Q: “So what did you do at the Extravaganza this year?”
A: “Learned a lot…experienced spiritual renewal…connected with peers…oh yeah, hung out with an academy award nominee.”
I blogged a couple of months ago about the documentary called “Inocente,” which we will be screening on Sunday afternoon at the Extravaganza. It is the story of a young girl who grew up homeless, and how her art became her escape, that which brought her faith and life. Much like last year when we screened “Blue Like Jazz,” the movie director will be with us to present the film, and to lead a discussion afterwards.
This year, Inocente, the girl who is the subject of the movie, will be with us as well. We are very excited about that. The tagline of the film is “Her circumstances do not define her. Her dreams do.” I am told that this is a very powerful documentary.
This morning I saw in the news: The movie Inocente received an Academy Award Nomination in the category “Documentary – Short Subject.”
How cool is that? Yeah. Very.
Another reason to be excited about Extravaganza!
See you there!
