A True Story of An American Soldier, documentary film.

Infantrymen who once ridiculed and scoffed at Desmond's simple faith and refusal to carry a weapon now owed their lives to him. Director Terry Benedict tells Desmond's incredible story through the eyes of the men who witnessed this humble man's heroic acts. Winning the respect of his fellow soldiers, he was recommended for the highest honor Amercia can bestow on one of her sons—The Congressional Medal of Honor.

In-spite of his boyhood love of photography, Terry Benedict grew up expecting to be an archaeologist who would discover the Holy Grail.

But he took a detour instead and found himself in Hollywood supervising chase scenes, most notably for “The Terminator” and “Marked For Death.”

In-between features, he worked with Academy Award® winning cinematographers Conrad Hall and Haskell Wexler to create commercials for Honda, Blue Cross, Nissan and many others. He produced numerous commercials for Japanese brands: Mitsubishi, Seagrams, and TDK Tapes – working with Madonna, Stevie Wonder and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Terry followed his filmmaking passion by writing/directing Painted Hero with Dwight Yoakam and Peter Fonda. His love of imagery rekindled, he became the Director of Photography for the documentary, Where I Stand: The Hank Greenspun Story narrated by Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins and directed by Emmy® winner Scott Goldstein. (scheduled broadcast 2012)

After working on over a dozen independent films, Benedict felt impressed to create films that inspire and promote positive messages to the global community. He produced and directed the critically acclaimed and award-winning documentary film, The Conscientious Objector. Of it, San Jose Mercury News film critic Glenn Lovell said: “…it profiles with singular grace and conviction the amazing life of Desmond T. Doss.”

The film garnered more than two-dozen awards in multiple categories during a two-year run on the festival circuit including many “audience favorite” awards, a Crystal Heart Award from the Heartland Film Festival and from Boston, a Humanitarian Award.

The film played on the International Documentary Association’s InFACT Documentary tour qualifying it for Academy Award consideration. It continues today to be broadcast internationally.
