SEEDS OF FREEDOM: A Vision for America

In this provocative film, Andrew Cameron Bailey and Connie Baxter Marlow bring a new perspective – a revolutionary look at the syntheses between European colonists and the American Indian in the evolution of the American democracy, mind and spirit.

Film Synopsis

Eminent philanthropist/historian James Phinney Baxter (1831-1921) believed that America must embody the high ideals of New England’s original settlers if it is to become a global exemplar of liberty, equality and justice. In 1921 he left a bequest instructing Boston to build a Pantheon to perpetuate the founding ideals and principles. Baxter’s great-great-granddaughter Connie Baxter Marlow adds a missing piece – the role of the American Indian in the evolution of the American democracy, mind and spirit.

The film points out that an extraordinary exception to the human condition unfolded when the visionary leaders of two radically different cultures met and worked together to maintain an inter-cultural exchange that became the “First Great Synthesis” between Europeans and American Indians during the first fifty-four years at Plymouth Plantation. This melding gave birth to American democracy and to the American mind and spirit. The “Second Great Synthesis” occurred when aspects of The Great Law of the Iroquois were integrated into the United States Constitution in 1787.

The filmmakers believe that a third synthesis is possible as our cultures come together again to realize the great promise America made to the world in its freedom documents the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution: The True American Dream – Liberty, Justice, Equality and Abundance for all.

Andrew Cameron Bailey and Connie Baxter Marlow are filmmakers and authors who have spent decades researching the founding of New England with the intent of bringing a new understanding to the development of the American mind.

Connie is a descendant of Mayflower Pilgrims John Alden and Priscilla Mullins, and of Thomas Welles, the first treasurer and 17th governor of Connecticut Colony. Andrew calls himself a “latter-day pilgrim.” He sailed across the Atlantic from England and arrived in America on Thanksgiving Day, 1969. Andrew has completed a 21st Century novel/screenplay with the working title “The Mayflower Revelations” that sets the historical record straight in an entertaining, enlightening and inspiring way. He is preparing to publish a well-researched magazine article on his theory concerning the pandemic that decimated the New England indigenous population between the years 1616 and 1618, a few short years before the Mayflower arrived at Cape Cod.

Connie and Andrew are authors of the book “THE TRUST FREQUENCY: Ten Assumptions for a New Paradigm”
and producers of the film “IN SEARCH OF THE FUTURE: What do the Wise Ones Know?” (Watch it HERE)
and film series “THE AMERICAN EVOLUTION: Voices of America.”
