Baptizing Feminism

Baptizing Feminism, is a timely, universally relevant documentary, that explores the rise of contemporary evangelical and Christian feminism as women take a stand opposing the biblical beliefs of an influential movement of evangelical leaders who say the Bible lays out clear instructions and designs for traditional gender roles. At the heart of the documentary is a heated, modern day debate about what the Bible teaches about the roles of women and men. On one side, the dominant evangelical groups today teach the Bible says that God chose men to be leaders and protectors in the church, the family, and, many say, in society overall, with women created to be helpers of men and subordinate to them – for the well-being of families and society. On the other side, Christian feminists believe God ordained the full equality of women and men in all areas of life, As they investigate and challenge the implications of such evangelical male-headship theologies and their impact on women and girls, and shine a light on the global dissemination of such gender role beliefs, including within U.S. political venues, this little known subculture of feminists raise important questions about how religious beliefs and practices in the United States are shaping our wider culture and world.

Many say this classic documentary was one of the first films that paved the way for the #Metoo Movement. Without recovery, many women sexually abused as girls, face emotional struggle, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress, and the perpetration of abuse in their lives and families. This artfully produced documentary illustrates the poignant stories of incest survivors: former Miss America, Marilyn Van Derbur, speaking out; Janice Mirikitani, President of Glide memorial Church, San Francisco, who helps inner-city women addicts to heal from incest; and Barbara Hamilton, a 79-year old survivor who ends three generations of incest in her family. The Healing Years points the way toward a hopeful future for survivors of abuse, and is a key tool for professionals working within the field of counseling, prevention and education.

Pursuit of Truth

Pursuit Of Truth chronicles the struggles of adult survivors of child sex abuse who seek justice against their abusers. The film shines a bright light on the legal system’s shocking suppression of the rights of survivors to establish the truth behind their abuse. In their own words, survivors describe in moving and explicit terms their personal journeys to obtain justice and the obstacles that blocked their paths. By presenting the survivors’ stories interwoven with the commentary of legal and social sciences experts, Pursuit Of Truth uncovers the pitfalls survivors encounter when they seek to lawfully confront their abusers. In doing so, the film raises serious questions about police procedures, prosecutorial charging decisions, defense lawyer tactics, and judicial responses to survivors’ claims. Pursuit Of Truth realistically identifies the many barriers that survivors must overcome to obtain justice. But by portraying the courageous survivors who have beaten the odds and navigated the legal system successfully, the film also serves to encourage survivors to assert their legal rights forcefully.Pursuit Of Truth has received a number of honors and wide acclaim for its piercing portrayal of survivors caught in a legal system in need of fundamental reform.
