I realized that just because a film is small budget, it does not mean it has to be yet another drama about a quirky, dysfunctional family intended as Oscar bait. "Indie" is not limited to just one kind of story, the possibilities are endless and now more and more filmmakers are starting to realize this.
Another Earth showed me that with very little you can make a film that challenges the imagination, while still delving deeply, subtly into human issues. To start off the Art House series on Reel World Theology, I knew that this was THE movie I had to write about first. Not because it's the greatest movie ever made, but because it was the movie that showed me I could do my own imaginative films without being under the thumb of the Hollywood corporate monster. Another Earth truly is all about possibility.
