Kanab documentary Natural Family Values to be shown on Saturday, January 9
On January 10, 2006, the Kanab City Council adopted a non-binding statement known as the “Natural Family Resolution.”
It defined a vision for Kanab that described families in a very traditional way, suggesting to some that non-traditional families perhaps weren’t as welcome in the city. (The text of the resolution can be read at http://www.sutherlandinstitute.org/uploads/draftresolution.pdf .)
The resulting controversy has become a notable event in Kanab’s history. Newspapers worldwide reported the story, letters to the editor filled newspapers for weeks, and what may be the largest attendance at a city council meeting occurred to discuss the ayes and nays of support for the resolution.
Powerline Films of Salt Lake City followed the story with their cameras, producing a professional documentary that will be shown at the Crescent Moon Theater on Saturday, January 9, at 7 p.m.
Many of your friends and neighbors, as well as members of the city council and the mayor, are interviewed in this film. Objective in its approach, the film takes into account opinions on both sides of the issue.
There is no set ticket price, but a donation of $5 is suggested to defray the cost of renting the theater.
