Bob Smith, USA II

Is your name Bob Smith? Do you know one, or think perhaps maybe? Do you wonder? This film's for you. Edited by my friend -- and EP neighbor -- Angela Wood. Screening Sunday, August 19
11 a.m. in Hollywood, $6.

Someone said this:

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. More info.
