A film by Martin Doblmeier
Award-winning director of PBS
Banhoeffer, The Power of Forgiveness, and The Adventists
Premiering this fall in selected locations across North America, and on PBS Spring 2014
The BLUEPRINT is a collection of short features about students and teachers who form an extraordinary network of schools operated by Seventh-day Adventists. From the streets of the Bronx, New York, to an Indian reservation in Arizona – from a riverboat that a century ago dared to teach newly-freed slaves to a modern day oudoor classroom in the Rocky Mountains – each story shows how the “whole child” approach to education – teaching body, mind and spirit – is transforming lives.
The BLUEPRINT premiers this fall in selected locations across North America, and on PBS Spring 2014.
Mr. Doblmeir is founder and president of Journey Films in Alexandria, VA. He holds degrees in Religious Studies, Broadcast Journalism, and an honorary degree in Fine Arts.

Over the years he has traveled on location to more than forty countries to profile numerous religious leaders, religious communities, heads of state and Nobel Laureates. His films examine how belief can lead individuals to extraordinary actions, how spirituality creates and sustains communities and how faith is lived out in the most challenging times.
