Father Ellwood (Bud) Kieser

Clip: Season 2 | 5m 46s

Following the Columbine High shootings, the film industry wrestled with whether the violence it presents on the screen encourages violent behavior in real life. Father Ellwood Kieser does think Hollywood bears some responsibility for society's violence. His calling, he says, is nothing less than to persuade America's entertainment industry to celebrate human values as well as money.
