BRIEF: Atlanta filmmaking duo hailed for their religious satire

A debut film by the Nigerian-American twin sisters from Atlanta about sketchy mega-churches is making a significant impact at the Sundance Film Festival. Writer-director Adamma Ebo and producer Adanne Ebo premiered “Honk for Jesus, Save Your Soul” at the prestigious independent competition over the weekend — and it quickly became a top-selling title, according to Variety. The film is a satire on a couple – played by Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown – seeking a makeover following a scandal at their Baptist congregation in Atlanta. The 30-year-old filmmakers, both graduates of Spelman College, were raised in the midst of Southern Baptist culture, but their parents were taught to “question everything.” variety.com
