  • MPAA Saddles Christian Film With “Restricted” Rating

    By Annelie on 12 September 2013 in with 6 Comments

    MPAA Saddles Christian Film With “Restricted” Rating   September 10, 2013 by B. Christopher Agee It is becoming increasingly difficult in our culture to find any form of entertainment that doesn’t trash the traditional values of Christian Americans.

Retta Baptist Church pastor Chuck Kitchens...

  • Pope Francis Biopic Coming Soon “A Priest’s Tale”

    By CFDb on 04 September 2013 in with No Comments

    Pope Francis Biopic Coming Soon “A Priest’s Tale“ Well that didn’t take long. Pope Francis, who was just appointed to the Papacy back in March, is getting his own biopic. A Priest’s Tale, which will be directed by Argentinain filmmaker Alejandro Agresti (The Lake House) and shot in Pope Francis’ native Argentina, tells the story of Jorge Mario Bergoglio—the child who would later become the leader of the Catholic Church. Not only has Pope Francis’ humble style of leadership captured the interest of the global media, he’s also the first Jesuit pope and the first from the southern hemisphere. According to Variety, the film will be a non-linear narrative, with flashbacks and looks forwards as Bergoglio travels to the...

Photograph by Art Streiber Ted Johnson Senior Editor @tedstew Los Angeles’ new mayor has vowed to help stanch the flow of film and TV production jobs out of Hollywood, starting with the appointment of a film czar at City Hall.
