Christians Behind the Screen: An Interview with Barbara Nicolosi

Lots to ponder in this interview with someone I already mentioned recently on the blog, for people interested in how and why Christians make mainstream art. It's about film, but it applies to anything. Provocative issues: how have the values of the baby boomers hobbled the subsequent generation of Christian artists? What about collaboration with people who hold different belief systems? What's with this weird religious-fear-of-beauty thing? Why does drama need demons? And perhaps my favorite, and a very apt U2 question I've mentioned in speaking engagements occasionally: "How does a Christian talk about sin in a way that's not an occasion of sin?" (Answer: the opening riff of "An Cat Dubh," for one.)
