Watch 'Ezekiel' - Painterly Film Portrait Of 12-Year-Old Ordained Minister (Short Shout!)
2
Ezekiel

A Friday short film shout, directed Luke Monaghan, titled Ezekiel

It's essentially a profile of Ezekiel Stoddard, the 12-year-old ordained minister from from Temple Hills Maryland. 

I like the filmmaker's use of natural sound and music, overlaying the images, to paint this short portrait of the young firebrand.
