First-Ever Documentary Directed by Active Duty Soldier Sets Release
Atlas Distribution Company announced today the signing of the award-winning documentary, "No Greater Love," to an exclusive US theatrical distribution deal. The first documentary directed by an active duty soldier in combat, "No Greater Love" depicts the deployment of the "No Slack" Battalion to Afghanistan through the lens of Army Chaplain, Justin Roberts. Layering real war footage with heartfelt interviews, "No Greater Love" invites the audience to experience war, its aftermath, and the hard road home from a soldier's perspective.
"'No Greater Love' presents a side of war rarely explored in film - the difficult journey back," said Atlas Distribution President, Harmon Kaslow, "Justin did an amazing job capturing stories that convey raw emotion in an absolutely visceral way. It's been estimated that an average of 22 soldiers a day attempt suicide. PTSD warrants immediate attention, and we're very proud to have the opportunity to help bring attention to the issue."
The combat footage in "No Greater Love" was shot by Director/Producer Army Chaplain Justin Roberts while deployed with "No Slack" in Afghanistan.
"This film means more to me than I can express with words," said Chaplain Roberts, "After getting to know the team at Atlas Distribution and experiencing first hand their online technologies, iScreeningRoom.com and CinemaCloudWorks, I couldn't imagine trusting the distribution of this film to anyone else."
"No Greater Love" scored extremely high in its iScreeningRoom.com test with a topline score of 94 percent. The film has already achieved critical acclaim, having won 11 awards including "Best Documentary" at the Boston Film Festival and the Louisiana Film Festival.
"No Greater Love" will have a limited release November 10, 2017, Veterans Day weekend.
