SALT AND FIRE (2017) Movie Review
CHRIST IN CULTURE
Imagine finding yourself in the middle of nowhere with two blind children you don’t know. It’s just you and them. This film connects with that feeling of lost-ness in the midst of strangers. We’ve all been there. If you have ever found yourself in a new place surrounded by people you don’t know this story will speak to you. Werner Herzog is a master story tellers.
One of the amazing features of the being human is our innate ability to survive and make the most of whatever situation we happen to find ourselves! It is how we were created.
I have learned to be content with whatever I have.
-- Philippians 4:11 (NRSV)
