“Martin Luther: The Idea That Changed The World” at Fountain of Life Lutheran Church
October 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The film follows the dramatic story of Martin Luther’s life: the massive lightning storm that nearly killed him, the bleak self-punishment of his time in the monastery, the corruption that unleashed his anger, his trial before the most powerful man in Europe, and the staged kidnapping that helped him escape the death penalty.
This is a highly-visual documentary with elaborate full-scale dramatizations that were filmed in the castles, monasteries, and cobblestone streets of eastern Europe. Dozens of historians from Europe and the Americas were interviewed, with a careful eye to ensure all sides of the story are represented. The film is narrated by Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”) and stars Padraic Delany (“The Tudors,” “The Man Who Knew Infinity”).
