Story


On September 11, 1857 in an unspoiled valley of the Utah Territory-and in the name of God-120 men, women and children were savagely murdered.

Who ordered the massacre, and why, has been hidden in a cloak of secrecy and conspiracy. And the reputation of one of the nation's mightiest religious figures has been preserved and protected.

Until now.

Based on actual historical events, "September Dawn" is a feature length drama that depicts the tragic encounter between a party of innocent settlers and a fanatic Mormon militia. The religious terrorism depicted in the film happened 150 years ago and resonates in many ways with acts of mindless violence occurring across the world today.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the didactic presentation, grim speechifying and tacked-on love story all signify a less-than-healthy regard for the audience's intelligence..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..spends so much time on the motivation of Bishop and the Mormons that the humanity of the victims is not fleshed out..”
by Dave Tianen [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel]
“..the jarring MTV-style filmmaking is so distracting and the "messaging" so unsubtle..”
by Brett Register [Orlando Weekly]
