Sight & Sound’s “I Heard the Bells” on DVD

Just in time for the Christmas season, Sight & Sound is releasing its first feature film, “I Heard the Bells,” on DVD. Many area residents are familiar with the company’s live theater in Branson.

Set in the 1860s, the film takes viewers on a journey through the experiences of author Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who leads an idyllic life until the day his world is shattered by tragedy. With a nation divided by Civil War and his family torn apart, Longfellow puts down his pen, silenced by grief. However, the sound of Christmas morning reignites the poet’s lost voice as he discovers resounding hope and a rekindled faith.

“While many recognize Longfellow as one of America’s most well-known poets, they often don’t realize how his words and faith in God had far-reaching impact,” director Josh Enck said. “The passion behind creating this film was not only to share the true story behind the Christmas carol but to deliver a story of hope to a hope-hungry world.”

As the first Sight & Sound film ever produced, “I Heard the Bells” exceeded expectations, garnering a 98 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Initially debuting in December 2022 as a three-day theatrical event, the film’s run in movie theaters nationwide extended to two months as a result of high demand, resulting in $5.6 million in box-office sales. A partnership among Pinnacle Peak Pictures, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Sight & Sound opens the door for the ministry to reach audiences in a whole new way.
