Somerset votes for faith-based ‘Article’

Company acquires rights to political doc

Political docu “Article VI: Faith, Politics, America,” which explores the hot-button topic of faith-based politics, will screen in more than 200 markets this fall in advance of the presidential election.

Acquired by Somerset Films, docu examines the much-debated issue of the role of religion in contemporary politics. Church and state are dissected through discussions with historians, religious leaders, politicos and citizens alike. Newcomer Bryan Hall, who shares helmer duties with Jack Donaldson, conducts the interviews.

Hall and Donaldson head Living Biography Media, a production company dedicated to making other service-oriented docus.

Film, which cost $1 million to make, will see a limited September release in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., and then expand to Boston, Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta and other locales.

Somerset prexy Dean C. Hale thinks “Article VI” will do particularly well in the purple states, capitalizing on the current political climate.

“People aren’t neutral on any of these subjects,” Hale said. “They’re at the forefront of what is going on right now.”

Hale also hopes docu will benefit from word of mouth. Groups from all sides of the political spectrum have been supporting the film, ranging from religious leaders to the Interfaith Alliance, which fights religious and political extremism.
