Recent Hollywood productions filmed in and around Rock Hill the past few years ... are all still waiting to be released in theaters. But (Zac) Brakefield, an 11th-grade Rock Hill homeschooled student, will debut the 30-minute feature film he wrote and directed Friday night at the Center for the Arts in downtown Rock Hill.
"The Spirit of Freedom" is a fictional tale set during the Revolutionary War, starring Zac and 22 other youths and adults from Rock Hill, Lancaster and other parts of South Carolina. All of the scenes were filmed in Rock Hill, at Andrew Jackson State Park and in the Kershaw County town of Bethune.
The story is focused on a small South Carolina town during the Revolutionary War. When British forces descend upon the colonial village, its citizens are faced with a choice: pack up and flee or stand strong to fight the enemy.
