"Shelby Knox Redux" - Altadena Community Church – July 19, 7 PM

Join with other people of faith for a respectful dialogue about the film Shelby Knox Redux, by Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt. The movie profiles a high school student who, despite her deeply conservative Southern Baptist upbringing, advocates comprehensive sex education and gay rights. Five years after her controversial activities, she returns to Lubbock, Texas to check in with her friends, her parents and a local church that "welcomes" everyone. An epilogue to the 2005 film The Education of Shelby Knox, Shelby Knox Redux takes viewers on a journey of personal awareness, family, faith, and transformation. The conversation that follows the film will respect all points of view with the goal of promoting discussion and understanding among people of various traditions and theologies.

Altadena Community Church is across the street from Saint Mark's, at 943 E. Altadena Drive. For more information about the film, click here.
