“The Lamp” lights up the way for charity screenings

The success of “The Lamp” charity movie premiere on Sept. 15, 2011, to raise funds and awareness for the Make a Wish Foundation in Oklahoma effectively started the ball rolling for the movie’s special charity screenings, scheduled to take place in 13 states within a month’s time. Directed by award-winning director Tracy J Trost and based on bestselling author Jim Stovall‘s “The Ultimate Gift,” “The Lamp” not only is an inspiring film of faith and love, but is also a way for people and organizations to help their favorite charities.

The Judge’s Choice Award winner at the 2011 New Media Film Festival in August, “The Lamp” is about a father’s struggles following the death of his son that could very well destroy his marriage, as well as the power of believing. Jason London (“Man in the Moon,” “Dazed and Confused“) plays Stanley Walters who, along with his wife Lisa (Meredith Salenger of “Lake Placid“) are gifted with an old oil lamp that plays a pivotal part in the resolution of their problems. Academy Award-winner Louis Gossett Jr. (“An Officer and a Gentleman,” “Roots“) is the mysterious messenger that challenged the couple to look deeply into their hearts to find an ultimate truth.
