Carl Larsen on Holding Convictions in Art

In this new video, Carl Larsen—owner and founder of Telescope Media Group—tells his own story of what it means to be a Christian storyteller in a world of competing narratives.

This week Carl and his wife, Angel, defended themselves before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit. They face the threat of steep fines and up to 90 days in jail for making films that celebrate same-sex marriage.

“The government shouldn’t threaten filmmakers with fines and jail time to force them to create films that violate their beliefs,” said Jeremy Tedesco, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom. “Carl and Angel are storytellers—they script, stage, conduct interviews, capture footage, select music, edit, and more—all to tell compelling stories through film that promote their religious beliefs.”
