With hot political films like “2016: Obama’s America” and the upcoming “Red Dawn” lighting up the box office, now comes a new addition to the genre that promises to spare neither Republican nor Democrat in revealing what really happened behind closed doors when Washington spent billions to bail out Wall Street.
“Red September” is a dramatic feature film “based on true events” and produced by the same people that made the nation’s No. 1 Christian video for over 22 weeks, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
“Red September” promises to not only reveal the ugly machinations on Capital Hill during debate over the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, but also tells the story of the “heroic” congressmen who fought against the first tide of D.C. bailouts.
According to the film’s website, “In September 2008, the unified forces of the Bush administration, Wall Street and leadership on both sides of the aisle rammed the Wall Street bailout through Congress. In the years that followed, the United States launched the largest intervention and stimulus programs in her history, engorging Wall Street, while doing nothing to correct the problems that led to the crisis.
“The American people understand that something is wrong and that they are being cheated,” the promotion continues. “Yet the mainstream media continually repeats the false narrative that the bailout was necessary and that it rescued the economy.
“Americans can see that their politicians lie to them, that the votes of Congress can be bought by shrewd special interests and that American government no longer represents its people,” the website concludes. “But the story the public does not know, is how principled congressmen fought the bailout for the good of the nation. Based on over two years of research and screenplay development, ‘Red September’ is an inspiring ‘based on true events’ story, pitting courage and honor against fear and greed.”
George Escobar, who with Michael Snyder and in partnership with 3R Productions is producing the film, explained to WND that despite all the ugliness that transpired on Capitol Hill during debate over TARP, “Red September” – like a modern-day “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” – focuses on those few in Congress who dared to stand up to the culture of corruption around them.
“Every generation faces a test of moral courage,” Escobar said. “When our leaders fail that test as they did in 2008, we all suffer. But it’s not hopeless. There is always a remnant of heroic men and women who will fight for liberty and stand firm with integrity. That’s what ‘Red September’ is all about – it’s a true story that models courage and shows that freedom cannot be permanently purchased; we must fight with vigilance to keep it.”
The film’s first trailer, debuting exclusively on WND, can be seen below:
A new era in Christian filmmaking
“Red September” is being produced by Advent Film Group, makers of the father-and-son film “Hero”, the groundbreaking movie made in conjunction with Patrick Henry College “Come What May” and the WND film “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
Escobar, who is also co-founder of Advent, told WND “Red September” is more than just a political thriller; it’s a launching pad for Advent Filmmakers to continue its revolutionary initiative to train and disciple a new generation of Christian filmmakers.
“Given the recent success of both “2016” and “Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” audiences are clearly hungry for films that speak truth,” Escobar told WND. “We need trained filmmakers to make more of them.”
To that end, Advent Filmmakers is working to provide a holistic approach to training film professionals that includes both scholarship and discipleship. While partnering with the Advent Film Group in the production of new films like “The Screenwriters,” Advent Filmmakers also offers internships in moviemaking, regional filmmaking workshops, an extensive filmmaking guide, upcoming online curriculum and coming later this month, through a partnership with WND, a live Christian filmmaking webinar for students, parents, ministry leaders – almost anyone interested in creating a competitive alternative to Hollywood.
“Movies are the most powerful instruments for capturing hearts and minds ever invented. Whoever wields it controls every facet of society,” Escobar explained. “It’s cultural warfare, and Christians must rise from our slumber. The Sept. 22 webinar is a wake up call. Advent is rallying students and adults everywhere to learn how to make powerful films, as well as become better informed consumers of culture.”
Advent Filmmakers explains its vision is to see “a new generation of Christian filmmakers who are both excellent in their craft and who hold tightly to the values of their Lord, a generation who can redeem the power of the medium and use it effectively to uphold that which is right, true, and beautiful – and then pass this vision on to the generation after them.”

Government officials in cahoots with Islamist regimes, federal agencies buying up bullets, attempts by lawmakers to restrict private gun ownership – it’s enough to make a man “paranoid,” says radio host Michael Savage.
“Here’s a news story for you: Hagel linked to Iran lobby,” Savage said on his Friday program this past week, quoting a WND exclusive that revealed secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel’s work for organizations that aid Iranian causes. “It doesn’t get any worse than this.”
“If you want to get paranoid, Obama can really help you in your work,” Savage continued. “Why would Homeland Security be buying 22 million more rounds of ammunition? Can anyone explain that to me? I mean Big Sis Napolitano – why does she need 21.6 million more rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets [DHS] has already obtained over the last 10 months?”
Several news agencies have reported a growing stockpile of ammunition by federal agencies unconnected to the U.S. military. No significant explanation has been offered for the massive acquisitions.
“This is shocking,” Savage said. “I want to remind you of something: Hollow-point ammunition is outlawed by the United Nations. Why would they need 10 million .40-caliber [and] 10 million 9mm jacketed, hollow-point bullets? Tell me why.”
Savage continued, “Now when you couple this with the fact that the DHS has secured over the last 10 months 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, and now you couple that with Hagel linked to the Iranian lobby, now you couple that with the man who wants to take over the CIA who has suspicious relationships as well, now you couple that with Obama being a very, very strange fellow to say it in a very polite way – I’ll tell you something. It will give you pause for thought, to put it mildly.
“Why would the Department of Homeland Security have purchased 1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition over the last 10 months at the same time they’re trying to disarm the average American citizen?” he asked.
