Kansas City Film Festival 2010 What did the secular festival in K.C. think about 'Live To Forgive'?

Personal redemption is at the heart of two documentaries. “Live to Forgive” tells an astonishing story: In 1986, Dean Eric Smith’s mother was beaten to death with a baseball bat. The killer was his stepfather. Skip Moody’s documentary is a real-life story of forgiveness that follows Smith, now a preacher, through years of anger and hatred, alcoholism and drug abuse, to a point where he felt ready (nay, compelled) to once again face his mother’s killer. The film is heavy on God, but you needn’t be religious to appreciate this story, which leaves you marveling at the human capacity for good.
