Storyline

From the brothers behind the Academy Award nominated feature documentary GENGHIS BLUES, comes the next great adventure. In an Indiana Jones meets Mother Teresa adventure, three middle-aged men, former soldiers and modern-day knights, travel the world delivering life saving humanitarian aid directly into the hands of civilians and doctors in some of the most dangerous yet beautiful places on Earth, the front lines of war. Ed Artis, Jim Laws and Walt Ratterman are self-styled Knights of Malta, and in 1995, they formed Knightsbridge International, a unique humanitarian aid organization, whose motto is "High Adventure and Service to Humanity." Artis explains: "We're not there to change anybody's politics, we're not in the God business, and we pay our own way." Their specialty is going where death from land-mines, bullets, or bombs is as frequent as death from hunger, disease, or the elements.

Soldiers of the Light.
25 January 2007 | by (Saint Petersburg, FL) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at Studio 620 via the Ironweedsfilm.com organization. The documentary covers three U.S. Veterans who have taken it upon themselves to help the poor and downtrodden in some of the most out of the way places on Earth. They fly to war torn 3rd World Nations and provide food, medicine, shelter and whatever else they can for people in need. This is a very important film for EVERYONE to see and experience. Three men in their 50's changing the World one village at a time. They seem to be doing more good than half of the governments that you can name.

The film is well put together and the dialog provided by the three men is priceless.

I'm not "religious" but these people are doing God's work. That is why I call them, "Soldiers of the Light." Ironically one of the things that they are against is providing aid with religion attached to it. They provide aid with NO strings attached. Great film, great story, great Men.
