In Search of Liberty
In the movie, a captivating statesman from America’s past takes a modern-day family on a series of wild adventures.
With a spicy mix of humor, magic and logic, he opens their eyes to the origins and importance of the U.S. Constitution, the degree to which it is under attack today and what can and must be done to save it.
Key aspects of the Constitution are very clearly outlined and important Amendments—such as those guaranteeing freedom of religion and speech, the right to bear arms, warrants for search and seizure, State’s rights—are shown to be vital in everyday life.
The real reasons behind the attempts to destroy our Second Amendment rights are brought home in dramatic fashion by a famous American hero from the Second World War.
Then, in a hair-raising ride, the “carnival” that passes for government in Washington is exposed for the frightening House of Horrors that it has become.
As a result of these eye-popping journeys and disclosures, a whole community takes to the streets in honor of Constitution Day. They know that the Constitution and its Bill of Rights and other Amendments are the bulwark of America’s great power and success and the very cornerstone of the freedom that we all enjoy.

DIRECTOR – NORM NOVITSKY
Norm Novitsky is an independent filmmaker, producer and director. He is the founder of BluNile Films and IC Liberty Films. Norm is known for his staunch support of the U.S. Constitution, and his latest film project, the dramatic-comedy In Search Of Liberty will introduce the U.S. Constitution to a wide audience.
In 1998, after achieving success in the business world, Norm returned to school to study filmmaking, where he wrote, produced and directed two short independent films before setting off as an independent film producer. As the head of BluNile Films, he executive-produced a teen suspense thriller, Pray for Morning, released in 2006.
By producing an entertaining film, Norm and his team will enlighten young and old alike on the importance of the U.S. Constitution and its impact on our freedom and liberty.
“If you don’t know your rights, it’s easy to lose them. We have to inform the public on the importance of the Constitution,” says Novitsky. “If we continue to bypass the Constitution, it will no longer exist. Thus, our freedom will perish.”
“In Search of Liberty, the motion picture, will visually demonstrate to modern-day America the application and relevance of the Constitution in an lively and entertaining way.”
