LDS Film Festival - American Prophet: The Story of...

Presented by Peery's Egyptian Theater at Peery's Egyptian Theater

Millions of people around the world know of him. Yet this frontier prophet of the early 1800's found little honor and eventual martyrdom at the hands of an angry mob in his own country. Who was this Joseph Smith and what was it about his remarkable life story, which inspired such impassioned rancor or unflinching reverence? Join Academy Award winner Gregory Peck for a fascinating look at this oft-misunderstood legend.
Visit Smith's birthplace in Vermont. Travel the dirt roads he fled down to escape persecution. Sit in the dark cell at Liberty Jail where he prayed. Feel the explosion of gunfire at his martyrdom. Joseph Smith's death, however, did not halt the work of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, one of the fastest-growing religions in the world today, with more than ten million members.
