Baptists at Our Barbecue

Former Albuquerque resident Robert Farrell Smith, author of eight published novels and one-time owner of a religious bookstore here in the Duke City recently debuted this, his first filmmaking effort, at the Santa Fe Film Festival, where it played to sold-out crowds. Baptists at Our Barbecue is a surprisingly funny and entertaining parable (based on Smith’s best-selling book of the same name) about a young forest ranger who moves to a small southwestern town occupied by 262 Mormons and 262 Baptists. As the residents battle for the tie-breaking support of this newcomer, the film cleverly sends up today’s bitterly partisan American landscape. 92 minutes
