Many films have recently been released which enhance the discussion of religious culture and those who subscribe to certain religions, such as Sandi Simcha DuBowski’s Trembling Before G-d, Heidi Ewing’s and Rachel Grady’s Jesus Camp, and Zarqa Nawaz’s Me and the Mosque. This anthology serves to fill a need for an academic treatment of the subject of the documentation of religious culture on film.
