Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace, DVD
Bonhoeffer's last years, his participation in the German resistance and his moral struggle are dramatized in Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace. The film won the top honor at the Monte Carlo TV festival in February 2000 and was broadcast in high-definition television (HDTV) on selected PBS stations in June.
More than just a biographical film, Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace sheds light on the little-known efforts of the German resistance. The film, directed by Eric Till and shot in the Czech Republic, Berlin and Canada, brings to a wide audience the heroic rebellion of Bonhoeffer, a highly- regarded Lutheran minister who could have kept his peace and saved his life on several occasions but instead paid the ultimate price for his beliefs.
The film is a testament to a man living out his Christian beliefs and values while caught up in events that defined the 20th Century. "Bonhoeffer" is a positive depiction of a person speaking the Gospel uniquely for today. It provides a role model of a faith-based man driven to difficult ethical decisions.
Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace is a vital portrait of the man, the teacher, the resistance fighter, the moralist, the prisoner and, eventually, the martyr.
