Friends of God: A Road Trip With Alexandra Pelosi
In this documentary, celebrated journalist and filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi (daughter of congresswoman Nancy Pelosi) hits the road, camera-in-tow, and takes a long, penetrating tour of 'Evangelical America' - interviewing at length the key evangelicals who qualify as movers and shakers on the political scene, such as Rev. Ted Haggard, the late televangelist Jerry Falwell, and Rev. Joel Osteen. From subject to subject, Pelosi sheds a light on the individuals who sit at the intersection between evangelical Christianity and right-wing politics and asks what their doings may entail for the sociocultural (and political) landscape of Middle America.
