According to Magnolia Pictures’ recent press release: “Jesus
Camp highlights the life-changing experience of three young
children, Levi, Tory and Rachael, attending the Rev. Becky
Fischer’s ‘Kids on Fire’ summer camp in Devil’s Lake, North

“The camp is a riveting example of a world many Amerians either
do not understand or dismiss as ‘fringe’ and irrelevant to their
own lives. But we felt perhaps they should take a closer look,”
said co-directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady. “The individuals
portrayed in this film — white, middle-class citizens — are part
of the fastest growing segment of evangelical Christianity
worldwide, and we wanted to give an objective, honest look at their
beliefs and impact on America.”

“The true-to-life documentary,” according to Magnolia Pictures,
“details the zealous faith of a group of charismatic Christians and
their children. The film depicts the passion of these young
believers as they speak in tongues, fall on the floor under the
power of the Holy Spirit, and shout blessings to a cardboard
cut-out of President Bush.”
