Sam Bacile & The Libya Crisis

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012 by

According to the Washington Post, the director of a controversial anti-Islam film has gone into hiding, according to reports, fearing reprisals over a work that has sparked violence in Egypt and has been linked to events in Libya that led to the deaths of four Americans.

A man identifying himself as Sam Bacile, a California real estate developer, posted a 13-minute clip of “The Innocence of Muslims,” in July, and the film became a lightning rod after the Egyptian media began showing parts of it on air and after dubbed versions of the English-language film appeared on the Internet.

In light of recent events our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those brave Americans who fell victim to the unrest in Libya.  Independent film remains a beacon of hope for expression and change and will always support those who are not afraid to fight for what they believe in.
