The Santa Barbara Film Festival is a big deal and attracts some serious folk. This year, Helen Mirren, Forest Whitaker, Will Smith, Al Gore, and Davis Guggenheim are all being honored and will be present... but an even more important and bigger star will be seen in one of the films and will be present for the screening
Yep, I'm in the documentary film The Price of Paradise which deals with housing in Santa Barbara. It shows on Friday evening at 7:00 at the Marjorie Luke Theater in SB. I've been preaching (figuratively and literally) that housing is a spiritual issue and needs top be addressed in this community. As Lisa Snider, the director and writer of this film says, "THE PRICE OF PARADISE is bound to inform, inflame, and hopefully spur community action."
