Saving Grace.

This video chronicles, in a most entertaining way, a community's commitment to saving a 100 year old church. It is part of the National Geographic series, "Monster Moves."

The presentation gets a little schmaltzy, but, in Baltimore, where the city casually tears down historic buildings, usually in the dark of night, as if they were mere trash, and people weep in frustration and dismay, it is great to see the collective genius of a community in love with a building, any building.

This is not animation, as it feels in the first moments. It is, for the most part, time-lapse photography.
