Aro Recommended Jesus Camp


USA 2006, 80 minutes
Dir. Heidi Ewing, Rachel Grady
Genres: Documentary / Controversy

Topics: Religion, Politics.


Aroview: A disturbing guided tour of extremist 'Jesus Camps' in the US, run by politically-aligned Evangelical Christian groups intent on indoctrinating children with the weapons of God.

Balancing the frightening, irrational methodology of Evangelical figureheads and their master plan for the future leaders of America with the reasoned perspective of an outspoken corner of the religious right (who oppose these camps), this is an at times sobering reminder of the antagonism between religions and non-believers. While quick to make fun of its fanatical subjects, of more concern for its makers is the exploitation of young impressionable minds, some of which are unfortunately not yet mature enough to think for themselves.
