: Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music?
Guided by fans, musicians, observers and critics from within the Christian music scene as well as the “secular” world, Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music? tackles the artistic, religious and cultural implications of the burgeoning independent Christian rock movement. Maintaining an impartial eye, first-time directors Vickie Hunter and Heather Whinna have created a “thoughtful picture of a community that’s often been cynically mocked in the mainstream media.” (Bob Mehr, Chicago Reader)
