The team at Noonday Films have put together a fantastic documentary called Old Radicals, and you can watch and vote for it here at the International Documentary Challenge. It is a captivating story about courageous love and the unflinching pursuit of justice. The documentary is a moving story about a couple who risk their lives protesting corrupt regimes. And, no, they aren't idealistic college students trying to save the world. They are at least old enough to be my grandparents, and they are trying to save the world. Old Radicals questions commonly held assumptions about what counts as a "good" life, and it encourages us to make a difference.
I am currently living in St Andrews, UK where I am pursuing a PhD in theology as part of the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts. I am interested in anything having to do with the interrelationship of art, theology, and culture. My particular research interests are in the Christian doctrine of creation and the nature of human creativity.
