"Peace in the Valley" is a new, 15-minute documentary directed by Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher and produced by The Intercept, the online publication launched last year by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill. The film was commissioned as part of the Intercept's Field of Vision series of short nonfiction features. "They said — so there’s this town, there’s this vote, and there’s this big Jesus on a hill,” Palmieri said in an interview. “And we said OK.” The film features interviews with locals, activists on both sides of the anti-discrimination ordinance debate, and scenes from the city's Great Passion Play.

Watch the film here (I genuinely recommend it), and read David Koon's April cover story for more context.
