"HEART of the BEHOLDER," based on a true story of censorship and intolerance, has won more Best Feature Film awards than any other independent movie. Distributors agree that "HEART of the BEHOLDER" is a riveting and timely story with superb acting and production values much higher than the actual budget. Those same distributors assume that "HEART of the BEHOLDER" is "too controversial" to be distributed.

Executive Producer Darlene Lieblich, a veteran network television executive working in Standards and Practices, says, "Many people assume our movie trashes religion or people of faith. It doesn't. Our movie is about the abuse of power -- both religious and political."

"HEART of the BEHOLDER" is based on the true story of Writer/Director Ken Tipton's family. Frustrated by the 12 years it took to make the movie and the distributors' lack of vision, Tipton conceived the idea of serializing "HEART of the BEHOLDER" into small clips and letting people watch them online for free. Tipton, one of the pioneers of the multibillion-dollar home video rental industry, says, "It's time for a revolution in independent movie distribution. We will open a new worldwide venue where independent filmmakers can showcase their passion projects for free and share in advertising revenue."

The HEART of the BEHOLDER Web Theater offers FREE viewing of behind-the-scenes background and production clips as well as the full "HEART of the BEHOLDER" movie serialized into easy to view clips, with or without commentary by the Producers. High-quality digital downloads of the movie are also available for rent or purchase.

Darlene Lieblich will be speaking at the National Association of Broadcasters conference in Las Vegas, April 13 -16. Contact Mike Davis below to schedule interviews or other media coverage.
