The Interpreter Foundation’s first filmmaking venture, Robert Cundick: A Sacred Service of Music, is now available for viewing online. See below.
It’s the initial installment in what we hope will be a series of such films, titled “Foundation Stones: Exemplary Individuals,” that will look at faithful scholars, writers, composers, and visual artists who have substantially devoted their lives to serious reflection on the scriptures and the Gospel and to expressing in their respective media what they’ve found.
Other film projects are also underway and will be announced in the near future. We are seeking financial support for these efforts.
Dr. Robert Joseph, of New Zealand’s University of Waikato, is currently in the United States as a visiting Fulbright scholar. On 5 August 2017, he spoke to a group of volunteers, authors, and supporters assembled for the dinner hosted annually by the Interpreter Foundation—which happened, also, to be a celebration of Interpreter’s fifth birthday. In his remarks, Dr. Joseph addressed the subject of “Maori Responses to the Mormon Church.” With his kind permission and through the efforts of Tom Pittman and Russell Richins, we are pleased to make a video of his presentation available to a wider audience.
