About the Film
“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 the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a religious group who found themselves wrestling with the questions of conscientious objection, the spectre of slavery, and the myriad social and political issues of the time. As the Civil War engulfed America, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists was established, and the issues of faith and duty to country clashed as conflict threatened to divide both nation and church.
Featuring beautiful cinematography, historical re-enactment, and thoughtful interviews, the film will artfully examine a microcosm of religious, civilian and military experiences during the Civil War, expanding our understanding of a momentous and pivotal time in American history.
“War In Heaven, War On Earth” is independently produced by The Lincoln Project in association with COGfilm.
