Movie Screening: “Thy Will Be Done”
Thursday, March 20, 2014
Location: Wilson Chapel
Film Screening: Thy Will Be Done (March 20)
Join BGLANTS and the Student Association on Thursday, March 20, at 7 p.m. in Wilson Chapel for a special screening of Thy Will Be Done, directed by Alice Bouvrie and featuring Jean Southard and Sara Herwig.
The documentary follows male-to-female transsexual Sara Herwig in her journey to ordination in the Presbyterian Church (USA). The Church’s conservative groups do not recognize Sara as female and challenge her fitness and eligibility to be a pastor. In addition, it is crucial to Sara’s success that she has support from friends and family.
The documentary explores the way in which alternative lifestyles and permanent choices of identity have the power to tear a family completely to pieces, only to bind it back together again, more closely but differently, than it has ever been before.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with Bouvrie, Herwig, and Southard.
