    ‘Balance of Justice’ Examines Trends Affecting American Justice System

    CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A Tennessee-produced documentary exploring the impact of moral relativism on the American justice system received acclaim this week at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.

    “Balance of Justice: Searching for Truth in a Relative Nation,” was a semi-finalist in the festival, which draws independent filmmakers from around the world.

    The film tackles sobering questions in the backdrop of today’s society. Is justice a concept relative to culture, which had one meaning when the Constitution was written, but another today?

    “Justice is dependant on truth,” said the film’s producer, Benjamin Owen. “It’s vital that we understand the foundational principals of justice.”

    The documentary features perspectives from experts Ben DuPré; Col. John Eidsmoe; David Fowler; Bodie Hodge and Dr. John Laida. Other talent included music composer Darren Dixon; acting by Nathan Keeler; and narrator Mike Brooks.

    “Falling deeper into relativism, our culture is longing for truth,” Owen says. “This film demonstrates that there is certain truth – Jesus Christ, the ultimate answer to America’s struggle for justice.” Salvation is found only in the just and loving God who paid the fine for sin (John 3:16).

    Owen said the San Antonio festival offers a high-profile venue for Christian filmmakers. “The first thing you notice is the focus on Christian values,” Owen explained. “The event opened with a reading from the Holy Bible. Many of the films were made by families, and it is a family friendly event. God is honored throughout the festival ­– through the films, by the speakers and the filmmakers. It was a real a joy to attend.”

    The 56-minute documentary is available on DVD and includes more than 30 minutes of bonus content. Find it on Amazon.com or learn more at www.BorderWatchFilms.com
