    People love to debate the role of religion in the founding of this, our country America. Was our country founded on Christian principles? Was its creation ordained of God? I am not even going to touch this debate here (or speak as to its relevance), but what can be said for certain is that Christianity at that time was a cultural norm (more so than it is today), and we can be fairly certain that religion was a general part of the discourse of the day. Whatever its actual role, those who feel Christianity was a major part of the creation of our country are highly inspired by that idea.

    Chad Burns is a filmmaker whose works of historical fiction center around belief in God. He has released his second film, Beyond the Mask, the follow-up to 2008’s Pendragon: Sword of His Father. While the latter took place in 411 A.D., Beyond the Mask is set in the midst of the American Revolution. Andrew Cheney stars as William Reynolds, an assassin for the East India Trading Company who is betrayed by his employers. He seeks refuge in the American colonies, where he befriends Benjamin Franklin and tries to win the affections of the beautiful Charlotte (Kara Killmer) – all while helping to defuse a devious plot against the burgeoning nation. But William has a violent and sordid past – can he be redeemed? Only with the help of Jesus.

    Village 8 Theater presents a one-time screening of Beyond the Mask tonight, Thursday, April 23. The movie will be shown at 7:30. Tickets can be purchased online here. Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Complete theater information can be found at the Village 8 website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
