Springhouse Films travelled to Washington, D.C. and Atlanta to film Jimmy Cater, Representative John Lewis and others for a short documentary film commissioned by the American Baptist Churches USA. The film, entitled “Inspired by the Spirit” reflects the momentum generated within the ABCUSA organization and inspires viewers through the personal journeys of church members and celebrities who share how their faith has guided them through inspiration to action.
The high point of the project for us was having the opportunity to interview Jimmy Carter at the Carter Center in Atlanta and Rep. John Lewis in his offices in Washington. Both are amazing individuals who have had and continue to have a huge positive impact in dealing with inequality and injustice in the world. Our only regret was that we had to edit their inspiring stories at all.
