A film about the life and legacy of Joseph Smith, founding prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is being shown in the Legacy Theater of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. (This film is also being shown at many Church visitors’ centers and historic sites in the United States, Mexico, and New Zealand.)
Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration has been produced under the direction of the First Presidency as part of the Church’s commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith’s birth.
The film depicts events in the life of Joseph Smith from his early youth in Vermont to his martyrdom in Illinois at age 38. It recounts Joseph’s search for truth as a young boy, a search that resulted in divine revelation that set his life on a path of service and sacrifice in restoring the Church of Jesus Christ. Through scenes of his interactions with family and with early Church members and others, viewers will see both the personal and public sides of Joseph’s caring nature and prophetic leadership.
