Honored Christian Film Attracts Distribution Interest In Norway
20 Dec 2005
San Francisco, California -- "The Final Call," a Christian film that won honors for its healing ideas at a recent film festival here, is being considered for subtitling and distribution in Norway.
Filmmaker and former TV newscaster Baker E, Morten said he was contacted about distribution rights for his movie in the Norwegian Christian market after it became an official selection of the sixth annual Christian What You See Is What You Get Film Festival for 2005.
The movie won honors for its healing message, and for showing people how to replace terror, trouble and turmoil with quietness and confidence. Last year`s winner was Mel Gibson`s "Passion of the Christ."
The Final Call is a three-part, three-hour production based on the healing truths of Christ`s best-loved and most distinctive Bible sermons - The Sermon on the Mount. It`s a source of information, ideas and inspiration for serious seekers of truth; people searching for the deeper purpose and meaning of life. It`s available now on website: www.finalcallmovie.com
"These great teachings of Jesus," Morten told the Festival audience, "are certainly not neglected in the Christian world, but they are miserably misunderstood. This film clears up the misunderstandings. It covers each verse of these important teachings in detail - from the cultural, historical and spiritual perspectives - something never before done on film."
It is estimated that Norway has upwards of 200,000 born-again Christians. Morten studied spirituality for more than 35 years while serving as a TV newscaster-filmmaker for Channel 7-TV in Washington,DC; a radio newsman for WMAL Radio in Washington; and a newspaper reporter for the Chicago Daily Defender; the Baltimore and Washington Afro-American newspapers; and the Associated Negro Press.
