Description

In this astonishing directorial debut by longtime doc producer Abigail Disney, one of our country’s most controversial issues gets an unlikely spiritual voice when an Evangelical minister takes a shockingly liberal stance. Known for his advocacy against abortion but disturbed by the movement’s vigilante killing of a doctor, Reverend Rob Schenck comes to a profound conclusion when he asks the provocative question: does pro-gun go against pro-life? In a gutsy move that creates friction with his NRA card-carrying flock, Reverend Schenck finds the courage to preach about the high cost of gun violence and begins a journey that leads him to Lucy McBath, a mother who challenged Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” laws after her unarmed son died at the hands of a gunman. Weaving their stories together in a wrenching moral battle, “The Armor of Light” redefines pro-life in an effort to get people to transcend party lines, evolve their stances, and find common ground. In Person: Director Abigail Disney (Sat).
