Friday Culture: political women, bible stories and crossing the border

Welcome to the end of the week dear reader! We thought you deserved a little culture.


Click here to read film critic extraordinaire, Robert Denerstein, on Exodus: Gods and Kings – a 3-D rendering of one of the best-known Bible stories.


Over here Tessa Cheek explores photojournalist and visual artist Patricia McInroy’s latest work “Cruzando Caminos,” in which McInroy traverses the border between a cultural institution and a bus station.


And here Rebecca Celli previews Strong Sisters,  a forthcoming documentary on women in Colorado politics.

The Colorado Independent is a statewide online news source operating in a time when spin is plentiful, but factual, fair and unflinching news in the public interest is all too rare. Our award-winning team of veteran investigative and explanatory reporters and news columnists aims to amplify the voices of Coloradans whose stories are unheard, shine light on the relationships between people, power and policy, and hold public officials to account. We strive to report the news with context, social conscience, and soul, and to give Coloradans the insight they need to promote conversation, understanding and progress in this square, swing state we call home.
