Oscar nominated film puts the guidance of the Holy Spirit as a centre theme

Based on the thrilling an inspirational life of American freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman, the film tells a true story of how she escaped from slavery, joined the underground railroad and went on to free hundreds of slaves changing the course of history.

Starring gospel artist Cynthia Erivo, the suspense filled family film carries a strong message of hearing from God and the benefits of following his steps when he directs us. We see this in the film as Harriet awaits the holy Spirit’s guidance before making decisions. This not only saves her life but that of the slaves she is trying to free as she makes multiple dangerous trips on foot.

The well told and shot film earned many accolades including Oscar nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role nomination and Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Song) for the song ‘Stand Up’ which is performed by Cynthia Erivo.
