Fovea is proud to present the first public screening of the short film The Little Freedom Church, directed by Lori Grinker, on Saturday, December 14th at 6:30pm.
The little church is the St. James African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church on Academy Street in Beacon. The film follows the small congregation as they discuss their history, their faith, and the joyful noise they make unto the Lord.
The 22 minute length film is free, seating is first come first serve. It will be followed by a short talk with the director and church memebers featured in the film, and a public reception.
