The story of Deborah is headed to the big screen in the forthcoming faith based film ‘Arise’
According to Deadline, Arise is based on the Biblical account of the only female warrior in the history of ancient Israel. The story follows a people who have undergone years of oppression at the hands of King Jabin of Canaan. Against this backdrop, an ordinary woman named Deborah is called by to rise up and deliver an unexpected victory for the chosen people of Israel.
The film is being produced by Ben Howard (CEO of Third Coast Content) along with Tom Rice and Ben Nearn of Sycamore Pictures and screenwriter Paige Collins.
“Arise represents a giant step forward for this genre as the first faith-based film to depict a woman in a position of leadership and authority,” Howard said in a statement. “It couldn’t be timelier. I believe the themes of women’s empowerment, justice and faith, along with a strong, dynamic female lead in the character of Deborah will resonate with our core audience.”
Deborah’s story can be found in the Book of Judges.[/vc_column_text][td_block_19 custom_title=”#ICYMI” limit=”6″ ajax_pagination=”next_prev” tdc_css=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
