LOS ANGELES (September 19, 2016) – Citizens United is proud to release the thought-provoking documentary starring "The Duck Commander" Phil Robertson in a passion project coming to select theaters on October 7th, 2016.
Phil makes a compelling argument on the absurdity of life without God. Featuring real-life footage from events throughout history and leading up to the modern day crisis of radical Islamic terrorism, Phil personally guides us through a journey that includes Athens, Greece; Rome, Italy, Paris, France; and even the notorious Nazi death camp of World War II, Auschwitz. With a biblical perspective, Phil covers events ranging from the creation of the atomic bomb, the impact of the Holocaust and the Civil Rights Movement. He uses these events to illustrate that God is the only meaningful anchor to a civilized society and calls on all of us to consider our faith.
Torchbearer is directed and co-written by Stephen K. Bannon. Bannon is an award winning filmmaker with previous titles including Generation Zero; The Undefeated; Occupy Unmasked and The Hope & The Change.
