Tonight @ UWM Union Theatre, 7 p.m
Whether it’s the evangelical crazies in Jesus Camp or Bill Maher’s satirical attack on religious leaders in Religulous, faith-based institutions usually get a bad rap in mainstream documentaries. But this free screening of the feature-length documentary “Renewal” shows various religions doing some good as they join in a combined effort to fight environmental decay. Filmmakers Marty Ostrow and Terry Kay Rockefeller traveled the country finding groups looking to clean, conserve and reconstruct the world one faithful step at a time.
