One of the best documentary's ever.

I watch this as a family night movie. There is NO profanity and you will need some tissues! This is a story that lifts the name of Jesus!

Terry BenedictIn-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.”

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.
