Next Topic: A Far Thing Coming Closer–The films presented make up a survey of post-Christian America: a culture highly suspicious of ideas like virgin births and parting waters, yet still thirsty for a consoling message of meaning and personal redemption. The phrase “A far thing coming closer” references a vague, judgment day event in folk preaching. It implies waiting in awe for something significant to be revealed.
