'Samuel - A Journey of Discovery' is a trilogy of short films that explore the same search for discovery of life's spiritual significance from the prospective of these three diverse youth. Through their differences, we recognize that desire within each of us to find meaning and significance in a world of disorder and disappointment. 'Samuel' draws meaning and significance from three diverse holy books: The Bible, The Book of Mormon and the Qur'an' an, and draws on the writings of Oglala Sioux holy man Black Elk to solidify its message that we are truly all 'children of one great father and one great mother.' Be a part of Samuel's Journey...a Journey of Discovery. Written by Anonymous
Unto All Nations
Film (short) by Michael L. Harris (Drama) Sound department, Editor, Camera and Electrical Department Samuel, an Islamic youth discovers an enlightenment and understanding apart from his upbringing.

Unto All Nations employs vivid visual imagery in its depiction of Samuel's journey...the moment of recognition, the transformation of rebirth, and a return to Eden. Samuel gains a testimony of Allah's (God's) saving and redemptive power to all men, in their own language, and in relationship to their own understanding. Samuel learns that God reaches all men in a way that is familiar and affirming to them, and HE leads them into HIS understanding as they surrender to HIS will. Written by Anonymous
