Citizens United has announced the upcoming release of their thought-provoking documentary starring “The Duck Commander” Phil Robertson in a passion project coming to select theaters on October 7th, 2016.
Phil makes a compelling argument on the absurdity of life without God. Featuring real-life footage from events throughout history and leading up to the modern day crisis of radical Islamic terrorism, Phil personally guides viewer through a journey that includes Athens, Greece; Rome, Italy, Paris, France; and even the notorious Nazi death camp of World War II, Auschwitz. With a biblical perspective, Phil covers events ranging from the creation of the atomic bomb, the impact of the Holocaust and the Civil Rights Movement. He uses these events to illustrate that God is the only meaningful anchor to a civilized society and calls on all of us to consider our faith.
In the mid-’70s, Phil turned his life over to the Lord and made dramatic changes. Phil Robertson is not only known as The Duck Commander, but also he has built a reputation across the country for his faith and belief in the Almighty. Every year, he is invited to speak to hundreds of churches and organizations, telling them what the Lord has done for him and what the Lord can do for them.
“Torchbearer” is directed and co-written by Stephen K. Bannon. Bannon is an award-winning filmmaker with previous titles including “Generation Zero,” “The Undefeated,” “Occupy Unmasked” and “The Hope & The Change”.
Mr. Bannon is a former Naval Officer who is the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News. He is on a temporary leave of absence as he is currently the CEO of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
The film was produced by David N. Bossie who has served as president of Citizens United since 2001. Bossie has produced more than two dozen documentaries. Recent productions include: “Rocky Mountain Heist” hosted by Michelle Malkin, “Occupy Unmasked” featuring the late conservative icon Andrew Breitbart, “Our Sacred Honor” with Senator Rick Santorum, “The Gift of Life” with Governor Mike Huckabee, and the award winning films “Nine Days That Changed The World” and “Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny” hosted by Callista and Newt Gingrich.
