The Thin Place #52: The Jones Family Will Make a Way at SXSW

Submitted by on March 18, 2015 – 9:57 pm

On the road at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, Ken and Todd report back on the documentary The Jones Family Will Make a Way.

The film chronicles the unlikely alliance between an African-American family of gospel singers and the white, secular rock critic who loves their music.

Todd likes the Jones Family Singers but questions the film’s narrative frame (which seems to treat the mainstreaming of gospel music as a new phenomenon). Ken likes the way the film challenges our preconceived notions of what happens when Christian artists interact with secular counterparts. And they both think the music is terrific. Listen to the full podcast here.
