Inspired by the true story of a pioneer hero.
Born into slavery and taken from his mother at age ten by another enslaver, Green Flake might have been lost to history like so many enslaved Black Americans before and after him. But when Green learned about the restored Church of Jesus Christ and its promise to reunite families forever in the next life, he made a choice that would take him on a wholly different trajectory. Committed to Jesus and desperate to see his people free and reunited, Green Flake takes on the most dangerous task of joining the scout party in the dead of winter to help prepare the route for Mormon pioneers to trek west from Illinois to the Salt Lake Valley in Utah. Fighting off slave traders, mobs, Indian attacks, and the prejudice of his fellow believers, Green Flake played a critical role in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is his story.
His Name Is Green Flake has been awarded Best Film in 10 different festivals, including the Venice Film Awards, the London Independent Film Awards, and most recently, the LA Film Awards.
Witness a beautiful story full of faith, family, and freedom in the award-winning film His Name Is Green Flake.
