'The Blind,' A Streaming Exclusive, Only on Great American Pure Flix March 22

NEW YORK -- "The Blind," the true story of Duck Commander Phil Robertson's darkest moments and the redeeming love of Jesus that changed his family forever, is now a streaming video-on-demand exclusive on Great American Pure Flix, beginning March 22. "The Blind," starring Aron von Andrian and Amelia Eve, had a limited theatrical run in Q4 2023, opened at #4, extended its release five times by popular demand, and is still the most successful release in Fathom Events history. "The Blind" will now stream exclusively on Great American Pure Flix starting Friday, March 22.

"The message of 'The Blind' is wherever a soul is on life's journey, it is never too late to find redemption. We are honored to be the exclusive streaming home to such a high quality movie, said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Great American Media.

"When I ran up on Jesus all those years ago, I didn't know a movie about my worst moments would help reach thousands in theirs. We pray everyone will watch 'The Blind' on Great American Pure Flix so they can see that redemption and forgiveness are for every last one of us," said Phil Robertson, American businessman and reality TV star ("Duck Dynasty").

Phil Robertson was 28 years old when he stumbled to his knees and saw the devil staring back from his own reflection. A decade of heavy drinking and fast living had left his life, his family, and his marriage to Miss Kay ("Duck Dynasty") in tatters. It was only then that Phil began to conquer the shame of his past, finding redemption in an unlikely place.

Born into hard times in Vivian, Louisiana, Phil became the man of his house when he was just a boy. Robertson's father was away months at a time working on oil rigs and his mother was hospitalized repeatedly for mental illness. Phil became one with the backwoods swamps, which brought him peace through nature and fed his younger siblings. A natural sportsman in the woods and on the field, Phil became a football phenomenon — a highly scouted high school and college All-American who received a scholarship to Louisiana Tech. Robertson was QB1 ahead of future Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw.

Phil married his high school sweetheart, started a family, and became a high school teacher. He rose from nothing to nothing but possibility before he lost it all. "The Blind" is a cinematic reminder that no one is beyond the grace of God, and no one is so far gone that they cannot turn their life around.

Willie Robertson, Jeremy John Wells, Jason Melton, and Troy Duhon are executive producers. Korie Robertson, Brittany Yost, Cole Prine, and Zach Dasher are producers. Line producer is Stephanie D. Needham. Director is Andrew Hyatt.
