Event Description
Stop the Pounding Heart

Part of the New Directors/New Films series at Lincoln Center, this quietly moving film could not be further from the big city. Set in rural Texas, it's an investigation into the inner life of a teenage girl — the state of her soul – as she falls for a boy from a vastly different background. Sara Carlson (playing herself) is part of a devout Christian goat-farming family with 12 children, all home-schooled and raised with moral guidance from the Scriptures (no phones, TVs, computers, or teen drinking). This drama, crafted in an intimate documentary-style, reveals Sara’s turmoil about her place in a faith that requires women to be subservient to their fathers and then their husbands.
