.- Rachel Scott was killed during the Columbine High School massacre in 1999, after refusing at gunpoint to deny her faith in God. Now a short film, titled “Rachel’s Challenge: The Battle Between Good and Evil” captures the teenage girl’s lifelong quest to do good and her last test of faith. The seven-minute film was one of several to take part in the nationwide Amazon Theater Tribeca Film Festival Short Film Competition, hosted by the Amazaon.com Web site, reported AgapePress. Amazon customers were encouraged to watch and rate the five finalists, which included “Rachel’s Challenge.”
The film, produced by ViaMedia, contains both unscripted and scripted dialogue as well as recreations of the incidents leading up to the young woman’s death.
The filmmaker with the highest-rated film will win $50,000. Voting for the film ended June 17. There is no report to date about how many votes “Rachel’s Challenge” received.
