Filmmaker Interview

Religious freedom becomes the arguing point on both sides of a campaign to end school prayer after a Mississippi mother takes a stand against tradition in School Prayer: A Community at War. Filmmaker Slawomir Grünberg explains how his personal experience with religious differences in his own family prepared him for the religious battle that played out in the film. Ben Crane talks about how the people in the film felt that adhering to the law meant "losing the moral backbone of their community."
