"In Search of Liberty" – Pro-Constitution Movie – Captures Best Screenplay at the Hoboken International Film Festival
Producer and director NORM NOVITSKY, who earlier executive produced the suspense thriller Pray for Morning which garnered the Columbine Award for Film Score at the 2007 Moondance International Film Festival, later said, "This was totally unexpected! Out of over 1,500 entries and approximately 150 films, shorts, documentaries and TV pilots chosen to be screened, to win Best Screenplay is incredible. Tom Solari wrote a great script and all of the people involved, the cast, the crew, those who worked in post-production, everybody … helped bring those written words into something special, something unique."
Solari, who penned the screenplay for In Search of Liberty based on Novitsky's premise, is a screenwriter, filmmaker and producer of marketing videos for business and industry. His earlier documentary, The Measure of America, won the Honor Certificate for Excellence from The Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge and was a Finalist at the American Film Festival.
In Search of Liberty features a captivating statesman from America's past who takes a modern-day family on a series of wild adventures. With a spicy mix of humor, magic and logic, he opens their eyes to the origins and importance of the U.S. Constitution, the degree to which it is under attack today and what can and must be done to save it.
Key aspects of the Constitution are clearly outlined and important Amendments—such as those guaranteeing freedom of religion and speech, the right to bear arms, warrants for search and seizure, and more—are shown to be vital in everyday life.
The cast of In Search of Liberty includes accomplished stage, TV and movie actor JIMMY HAGER; BOBBY DEEN, a familiar face on numerous cooking shows and the son of American celebrity chef Paula Deen; publisher and talented movie, TV and voiceover actress, KAREN BOLES; SIMONE GRIFFETH, who starred alongside David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone in Death Race 2000, along with rising teen stars, KAYLA HUTH and TYLER HUTH.
