If we look back at history, we will see that generations of people around the world have experienced seasons “that try men’s souls.” We believe we are in such a season today. We are in the midst of a critical historical moment where we are being called to not only protect the vulnerable and the sick, but to also demand and pursue justice for those who have been needlessly victimized; all the while protecting our own inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Overview of Film
It is precisely for these reasons that two award-winning production companies, Do What’s Wright and Mount Harvest, have come together to produce a documentary about the catastrophic impact that the Pennsylvania Governor and the Health Secretary’s decisions, in response to the COVID pandemic, have had on people’s lives and livelihoods. These are decisions that have triggered a constitutional crisis in the state of Pennsylvania. Ultimately, this is a story that is being played out, state after state, across our nation.
Goal of Film
As we brace ourselves for the impolitic state-government decisions that will come with the predicted second wave of COVID (and other possible national and state-wide emergencies), we must not ignore or forget the fallout from the first wave of choices: the elderly “death camps”; the destruction of family businesses and livelihoods; the perpetuated mental health crisis; and the decay of constitutional rights. It is the goal of this film to examine the decisions made by the state government’s leadership and the resulting aftermath so that we may reflect, learn, and mobilize to ensure that we never find ourselves in such a state of economic, emotional, social, mental, and physical despair.
Below is a teaser video of the first five minutes of the film.
