The following is a brief movie produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) on the life of Joseph Smith. I post it here for three reasons:
1.) Smith and the Mormon movement are an important component to American religious history, which is a key focus of this blog.
2.) I believe it can provide some general insight into the doctrine of "the restoration", which has been a topic that I think we may have misrepresented/misunderstood here at AC (not to mention many other blogs).
3.) It is made and produced by the Mormon church, and it has only been in recent years that the church has released these videos to the general public (as you can see it is on Youtube). Clearly this provides a pro-Mormon view of things but at least it gives you the Mormon angle on restorationism and Smith himself, as opposed to what are often misunderstood sources.
Anyway, I hope you will enjoy!
