THE ARMOR OF LIGHT
Directed by: Abigail Disney and Kathleen Hughes
Documentary 88 Minutes PG-13
In a gripping portrait of courage, director Abigail E. Disney follows the journey of an Evangelical minister, Reverend Rob Schenck, anti-abortion activist and fixture on the political far right, who breaks with the orthodoxy by questioning whether being pro-gun is consistent with being pro-life. Along the way, Rev. Schenck joins in this crusade with Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager who was murdered in Florida and whose well-publicized story has cast a spotlight on “Stand Your Ground” laws. Together the two work to convince the Christian right that the second commandment trumps the second amendment.
Panel discussion to follow the film with Randy Balmer and Kathleen Shepherd of GunSense Vt and the Society of Friends, and Bob Williamson of GunSense.
