Attendees at the February 4 Napa Valley area premiere of Come Before Winter expressed enthusiasm and connection with the film. Many remain after the presentation of the film for a lively Q&A session with the producer, director and script consultant.
“Living in an age where our own comfort and security seem paramount in the values of so many in our society, Come Before Winter is a powerful affirmation of the eternal values of putting our lives at risk rather than seeking our own. Rather than choosing the comfort of living in the United States, Bonhoeffer chose to return to Germany. The example of his life speaks to us today through this evocative documentary.”
— Richard Osborn, Vice President, WASC Senior College and University Commission
“Brilliant! Eerily relevant for today.”
“That haunting German music” added so much to the story.
“It took my breath away…where are we headed?”
“Thought provoking…do the ends justify the means?”
After showing the film, Gary Blount (Producer) and Kevin Ekvall (Director), answer audience questions in Scales Chapel.
Film script consultant, Rajeev Sigamoney, was also on hand to interact with the audience.
