As part of our Luther Exhibition we aim to show a child friendly, but historically accurate and biblically challenging film on Luther's life and ministry. We have one in our sights at present that seems to 'tick all the above boxes.' More about this at a later date ... .
Meantime my attention was drawn today to another film about Luther that is currently 'in the works.' This is being produced by Stephen McCaskell, an independent filmmaker based in Manitoba, Canada. Stephen is already well known on account of his first documentary, Through The Eyes Of Spurgeon, which has been seen more than 200,000 times.
His latest effort will not suit our purposes as it targets an older audience. This is not to say that the advertising blurb – and accompanying trailer – for this latest film does not whet the appetite:
"Discover the story behind the man who sparked the Protestant Reformation. Told through a seamless combination of live-action storytelling and artistic animation, Martin Luther’s daring life is presented in extensive detail while still making the film relevant, daring, and accessible."
