Since it’s Indie Movie Monday (#IndieMM), I thought I’d post up this indie film trailer, “8: The Mormon Proposition.” (I first found out about this indie film from my tweep @FilmSnobbery (thank you!) I thought this article on the film by my tweep, @FilmSnobbery was especially interesting. Check it out!
“8: The Mormon Proposition exposes the Mormon Church’s historic involvement in the promotion and passage of California’s Proposition 8 and the religion’s secretive, decades—long campaign against gay rights. The film takes place in California and Utah as Mormons, following their prophets call to action, wage spiritual warfare with money and misinformation against gay citizens, doing everything they can to deny them of marriage and the rights that come with it. 8: The Mormon Proposition opens in theaters on June 18th, 2010, two years after the first gay marriages took place in California (June 17th, 2008).”
Note: For those interested, here’s an interesting video talking more in depth about the film and the issue.
(p.s. If you have a project(s) you’d like me to check out (i.e. fan trailer, short, spoof, animation, etc), feel free to contact me here or through my Facebook Page. I’m always on the lookout for fresh stuff from emerging filmmakers!)
