War in Heaven, War on Earth
The Birth of a Church During America's Greatest Crisis
"War In Heaven, War On Earth" is a full length documentary feature film that explores the converging experiences of a nation at war and the formation of a religious group who wrestle with the question of conscientious objection, the spectre of slavery, and the myriad social and political issues of the time. As the Civil War engulfs America, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists is established, and the issues of faith and duty to country clash as conflict threatens to divide both nation and church.
Featuring beautiful cinematography, historical re-enactment, and thoughtful interviews, this documentary artfully examines a microcosm of civilian and military experiences during the Civil War, producing a film that expands our understanding of a momentous and pivotal time in American history.
