The True Story Behind the Beloved Christmas
Carol and its author, Henry Wadsworth
Longfellow coming to The Big Screen
LANCASTER, Pa., Sept. 15,
2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Following five decades of
producing spectacular family-friendly entertainment experiences on
the live stage, Sight & Sound recently unveiled the newest
expansion to its brand, Sight & Sound Films. Today,
the ministry has announced details of its highly anticipated first
movie, "I Heard The Bells," arriving in theaters
December 1, 3 and 4 in partnership
with Fathom Events.
Set in the 1860s, the film takes viewers on a journey through
the life of American-poet, Henry Wadsworth
Longfellow, who leads an idyllic life – until the day his
world is shattered by tragedy. With a nation divided by Civil War
and his family torn apart, Longfellow puts down his pen, silenced
by grief. However, it's the sound of Christmas morning that
reignites the poet's lost voice as he discovers resounding hope and
a rekindled faith.
"As one of America's best-loved and recognized poets, Longfellow
was the voice of culture in that moment of history," said
Josh Enck, President and Chief Story
Officer of Sight & Sound who also served as director for the
film. "And as Sight & Sound's first feature, it embodies our
mission to tell true stories about historical figures whose lives
changed the world because Christ first changed them."
After a devastating loss that leaves Longfellow bereft, he
eventually remembers where true hope can be found, finding his
faith once again. "I Heard the Bells" is an inspiring story of
redemption and rekindled faith.
"We're honored to partner with Fathom Events to bring this
redemptive story of faith to movie theaters this Christmas season,"
said Enck. "We can't wait for people to experience this inspiring
true story on the big screen!"
