At the time I watched Fierce Light, I was reading a book by Brian McLaren called, "Everything Must Change: When the World's Biggest Problems and Jesus' Good News Collide." There were a couple of paragraphs in it that I thought was especially fitting to one scene in Fierce Light. At approximately twenty-five minutes into Fierce Light, while attending a support-our-troops-type rally held at Ft. Benning, a Pastor Emanuel Wiggins embarrassingly attempts to justify war using the Bible. On the same day, there was a protest across town from Ft. Benning attempting to shut down a government program that trained snipers, presumably some of the same snipers used to shoot peaceful protesters in South America.
These are the relevant paragraphs from McLaren's book:
Nowhere is [Jesus'] message clearer than in his prophetic action on what we call Palm Sunday. One imagines Herod, two links down in Caesar's chain of command, coming into Jerusalem on one side of town. He is attended by horses and chariots and guards armed with swords and spears.Read more ›
The film features segments that include Thich Nhat Hanh, Desmond Tutu, Micheal Beckwith and a host of others that provide compelling and inspiring perspectives in their stories. Where most documentaries about activism that I have encountered solely focus on the negative, this film provides a positive aspect on the events covered through the people themselves. The Film itself is well done, balanced, objective and very entertaining. I would recommend this Film for any home library.
