Candidate films / directors

For now, a somewhat arbitrary list of titles that floated into awareness.
Many of these were listed on the September 2022 Ministry Fair “Faith and Film” flyer.
For various “best films” web links see the Film Resources page.
These include a site with lists overlapping with our interests: Arts & Faith
Standing invitation to suggest other titles or directors, and importantly, to prune the list.
One model: Identify a set of themes/topics of common interest and then match films that correspond to these.
