March 03, 2019 07:17 PM PST
When the name GREEN BOOK was read aloud as the winner of Best Picture at the 91st Oscars last week, it erupted a firestorm of controversy. While some pronounced the film as outdated and problematic in its portrayal of racial issues in today’s culture, others defended the film and authenticity. This week, we welcome back ScreenFish’rs Chris Utley and Shelley McVea to challenge the film’s arguments about stereotypes, the merit (or not) of its depiction of dignity and its responsibility to get the facts straight.
At ScreenFish, we believe that the truths of God's story can be seen in unexpected places, especially within the world of film and television. We're looking for those connections wherever possible.
Welcome to the conversation.
Welcome to ScreenFish.
ScreenFish is committed to the relationship between faith and film. It's our goal to seek the echoes of God's story in the world of film and television.
