This past weekend we ushered in yet another chapter in the enigmatic story of the Danielson Family as we held an opening reception for the launching of the new movie “Danielson: A Family Movie (or, Make A Joyful Noise HERE)” by J.L. Aronson, at the Cinemat here in Bloomington. Amidst libations, cake, and giveaways, the movie was played to a near capacity crowd, with many oohs, aahs, and applause. Get the specifics on the movie, and when it will be coming to a theatre near you directly below.

What its all about……
“Danielson: a Family Movie” follows multi-media artist and musician Daniel
Smith as he creates a musical phenomenon using his siblings and friends,
eventually facing the struggle to realize his solo identity once the family
members begin their own adult lives. Co-starring Sufjan Stevens and
featuring cameos by Rick Moody, Daniel Johnston, and Steve Albini, the
feature doc takes on issues such as creativity vs accessibility, Christian
faith vs popular culture and family vs individuality.
