WASHINGTON, April 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Rediscovering God in America II: Our Heritage, produced by Gingrich Productions, in partnership with Citizens United, has won “Best Feature Length Documentary” at the 2010 Garden State Film Festival on March 25-28 in Asbury Park, NJ.
Hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich, Rediscovering God in America II: Our Heritage explores the role of religion in early America and the belief that “our Creator” is the source of our liberty, prosperity, and survival as an exceptional nation. From the first permanent English settlement at Jamestown in 1607, through the American Revolution, to the end of the Civil War in 1865, this film tells the story of the deep faith that motivated and sustained our great leaders, and dramatically presents our nation’s belief in religious freedom.
“It is an honor for Rediscovering God in America II: Our Heritage to win at the Garden State Film Festival this year,” said Callista Gingrich, President of Gingrich Productions. “Newt and I, along with our Producer Dave Bossie and Director Kevin Knoblock, are proud of this film and its message, and we thank the Festival for this wonderful distinction.”
“The aspect of the film that won me over is that the documentary is a historical piece, not partisan or revisionist,” said Nick Falcone, a member of the Festival’s Board of Directors. “In speaking with audience members after the screening, people were unanimous that this film should be part of every school curriculum.”
