Independent filmmakers are spotlighted in this anthology, which concentrates on documentaries, but occasionally features artist profiles and offbeat fictional films.

Season 6, Episode 17 Let the Church Say Amen

First Aired: March 29, 2005

“Let the Church Say Amen” follows members of World Mission for Christ in Washington, D.C.'s tough Shaw neighborhood for a year. It's a quietly powerful film (except when Pastor Bobby Perkins preaches---then it's not quiet at all). For all, their faith is their rock, and for Darlene Duncan, a mother of eight on welfare, “God stepped in,” and she's accepted into a nursing-assistant program.
