How do you find Liberty in today's world?
From the film's website: In the movie, a captivating statesman from America’s past takes a modern-day family on a series of wild adventures. With a spicy mix of humor, magic and logic, he opens their eyes to the origins and importance of the U.S. Constitution, the degree to which it is under attack today and what can and must be done to save it. Key aspects of the Constitution are very clearly outlined and important Amendments—such as those guaranteeing freedom of religion and speech, the right to bear arms, warrants for search and seizure, and State’s rights—are shown to be vital in everyday life.
While this 96 minute film is not rated, it is family-friendly.
In Search of Liberty was brought to the screen by director/producer Norm Novitsky, an independent filmmaker and founder of IC Liberty Films and BluNile Films. Norm is known as a passionate champion of the U.S. Constitution, with a mission of providing educational media on the subject. He brings a successful, entrepreneurial background to the production along with a team of accomplished stage, TV and movie talent. The goal of In Search of Liberty is to provide a visual and entertaining film that empowers viewers to understand their rights, the importance of protecting freedom and the challenges that may occur along the way.
Understanding and protecting our constitutional rights is a vital topic of national awareness. In Search of Liberty educates and provides clarity on the tenets of the Constitution in an entertaining, straightforward and contemporary way. The heart of the film shows that if the Constitution is lost, freedom, as we know it, is also lost.
I've been leading Study Groups through the Constitution for over 25 years. We get into the meat. But something has always been missing.
We need -- I mean the country needs -- an entertaining way to understand what the Constitution is and how it affects our lives. We have never had a fun movie where a person can enjoy the story and soak up the basics of the Constitution.
Until my long-time friend Norm Novitsy took on the task.
This movie has been described as ‘Ben Franklin meets Back to the Future’, and I agree. It is not meant to turn everyone into a Constitutional scholar, but it does entertain general audiences with a great story that portrays the Constitution’s purpose and importance, and shows us what our lives might be like if the Constitution were to be lost or abandoned.
I bought the film, I watched it. I promoted it to my Constitution Study Group. Norm asked if I would be a spokesman for the film. It took about four seconds for me to say 'yes!'
I don't get paid as a spokesman. I'm doing it because it needs to be done.
I recommend this film, even to those who have poured over the Constitution in the past. For those of us who know it, we have children and grandchildren who need an engaging introduction.
For those who want an introduction to the Constitution, a great starting place is this film.
See the Trailer, buy the DVD (I hear they have a special on right now.)
