Keynote Address - "Lessons Learned from Ephraim Hanks" - T. C. Christensen
From the director of the sensational pioneer film 17 Miracles has come a new movie that tells the heroic true story of a simple man who was called to do the work of angels. Ephraim's Rescue relates the story of Ephraim Hanks, a rescuer of the Martin Handcart Company. T. C. Christensen will share thoughts on the lessons he has learned from the life of this extraordinary pioneer.
T. C. Christensen is a writer, director, and producer for the movie Ephraim's Rescue. His past accomplishments include the movie 17 Miracles, the story of the Willie and Martin Handcart companies, their struggles, and the miracles they experienced as they crossed the plains. He has made several films about the Prophet Joseph Smith. Among these are Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration and Emma Smith: My Story. He also made A Giant Among Men, about the life of President Gordon B. Hinckley. Other LDS films include Testaments and The Work and the Glory. Christensen has been involved in many feature films, including Rigoletto and Forever Strong, as well as IMAX films, including Lewis and Clark for National Geographic and Roving Mars for Disney. His short films include The Touch of the Master’s Hand, The Pump, Only a Stonecutter, and The John Tanner Story. T.C. lives with the lovely Katy Christensen in Centerville, Utah, where he continues to be tutored in the finer points of putting dirty dishes into the dishwasher and closing drawers all the way. They are the parents of Tanner and Tess, in-laws to cute Carly, and grandparents of Adelaide.
