Exclusive Interviews with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu to be Screened as a Part of Solstice Film Festival in Minneapolis, MN

Directed by Daniel Lusko, “Epicenter” is based on the New York Times best-selling book by Joel C. Rosenberg. It will be screened on Friday June 19th at Suburban World Theatre part of the Solstice Film Festival documentary programming.

Minneapolis, MN, June 17, 2009 --(PR.com)-- “Epicenter” written by Joel C. Rosenberg featuring interviews with key Middle East leaders will screen at this year’s event Friday June 19th, 2009 at 6pm.

Directed by Daniel Lusko, “Epicenter” is based on the New York Times best-selling book by Joel C. Rosenberg. Filmed on location in the Middle East, Joel C. Rosenberg and Skip Heitzig conduct exclusive interviews with a variety of key leaders from military, government, business, and Christian ministry, as well as skeptics and critics of evangelical Christian views of the "last days." These interviews will give a historical context and a foundation for how current events will shape our future. With growing interest in prophecy, this documentary will answer questions such as "Are we living in the last days?"

“Epicenter is a real eye opener. The message is very strong and powerful,” said event founder and Executive Director Devin Halden “and with recent developments between Iran and Israel this film couldn’t be more timely.” The documentary pieces together interviews from top military and government officials, former terrorists, Shiite converts, etc. in order to warn how the current events in the Middle East will shape our future. General Moshe Ya’alon, former Chief of Staff of Israel Defense Forces states, “There are few leaders today who really understand we are engaged in World War Three.”

Solstice Film Festival will be screening 25 feature-length films over the three day event in Minneapolis, MN. All films will be screened at Suburban World Theatre. Halden created Solstice in 2006 and immediately won accolades for programming including projects that have been picked up for studio development as well as nominated for Academy Awards. His vision is twofold; to provide independent filmmakers and artists a platform and audience to premier their work; and to produce an event that spotlights Minnesota as a backdrop for future studio and independent film productions.
