CFI-West’s FEED YOUR BRAIN Lecture Series

Screening followed by a discussion with Director Neil Abramson

Sunday, August 19 2007
11 a.m. in Hollywood, 4:30 p.m. in Costa Mesa
$6, or free for Friends of the Center.

This documentary is a look at seven of the more than 80,000 Bob Smiths in the United States. Despite their common names, these men vary greatly in profession, age and religion – from septic tank repairman to yoga instructor; from 28 to 88 years old. CFI members might be particularly interested in the Evangelical Christian and the Evangelical atheist Bob Smiths. The latter designed the “Jesus Dress Up” Web site and received lots of hate mail for his efforts.
South African born director Neil Abramson will be on hand to discuss this unique look at America. Abramson has directed five feature films and dozens of commercials and videos. He has won several awards for his work.
Please join us here or in Costa Mesa for a look at this funny and fascinating film.
