Free at Last: the Movie is the first DVD released by DC Talk. It is a documentary that follows the band after the release of their groundbreaking album, Free at Last, also featuring live concert footage of such songs as a live remix of their first song "Heavenbound" and the popular dc Talk live melody "Walls/Time Is...". Free at Last: the Movie was released in honor of the tenth anniversary of the release of Free at Last.

History[edit]

Free at Last: the Movie was filmed during the 1994 "Free at Last" world tour to capture a behind-the-scenes look at DC Talk. It was filmed for a theatrical release, but was plagued with delays due to contract negotiations between the band, record label, and the producers of the film.

A trailer for the film was first included in DC Talk's long-form video Narrow Is the Road. Like Free at Last: the Movie, Narrow Is the Road was also a behind-the-scenes look of DC Talk filmed during the 1994 "Free at Last" tour, and included a lot of the same footage as Free at Last: the Movie. A second trailer was included in the enhanced CD single of "Jesus Freak". This trailer advertised a September 17, 1995 theatrical release date for the film. The release date passed, but the film was never released, and reports began to surface that the film had been abandoned.

In 2002, eight years after filming, the film was finally released direct to DVD. It was released without any editing/finishing being done to the original theatrical production that was previously halted amidst production and does not have a title or credits; instead having Title where the title should be and Credits where the credits should be.[1]
