“All for Liberty” film to be screened at Spartanburg Methodist College

September 13, 2013 at 2:54 pm

The award-winning film, “All For Liberty,” will be screened at Spartanburg Methodist College on Monday, Sept. 30 in the Gibbs Auditorium at 7 p.m.

Described as “Far from being just for history buffs, this is a great film, period,” All For Liberty is the winner of nine international film festival awards, as well as two awards from the SC Sons of the American Revolution and First Prize in Media from The Lady Washington Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The film also received the Dove Foundation Worldview Review’s “Family Approved Seal” for movie goers ages twelve plus.

 Based on true events, All For Liberty provides viewers with realistic action of America’s hard-fought war for independence…and a reminder of how easy it is for freedom to be lost. Praised internationally for its universal appeal, the beautifully-photographed, emotionally-moving feature film is a historically accurate tribute to an unknown hero of the American Revolution. Outstanding sound by Jeffrey Stern and music by Anthony DeRitis authentically captures battle scenes with perfection.

 Set in South Carolina during the Revolutionary era, the film tells the story of Henry Felder, a Swiss immigrant who came as a mercenary Indian fighter. As time goes on, he settles in Orangeburg and gets involved with the patriot cause and becomes a leading producer of gunpowder for the patriots.

 The film is an independent production of the Actors Theater of South Carolina based in Folly Beach, which is operated by Clarence Felder and his wife, Chris Weatherhead. Felder, a descendant of the main character, plays “Henry” in the film, and Chris, an actress in her own right, plays Henry’s wife, “Catherine.” The cast is predominantly made of local actors based in South Carolina.

 Make plans to experience All For Liberty for yourself on Monday, September 30th at 7 p.m. in the Gibbs Auditorium at Spartanburg Methodist College. The public is invited and admission is free of charge. For more information, please contact Yvonne Harper, harpery@smcsc.edu or 864-587-4278.
