Mormon Messages: "Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration"

The Church has released a full-length movie on the internet about the life of Joseph Smith, the prophet of the restoration.  According to a news release from the Church:
The film will also help people better understand Latter-day Saint belief in modern prophets, the purpose of temples, and the eternal nature of family relationships. There is also additional context around historical events such as the First Vision — when God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith when he was 14 years old.
“Our hope is that people who aren’t familiar with the story will come away with an increased understanding of the role Joseph Smith played in restoring the Church of Jesus Christ,” John Garbett, who produced the new movie, said.
You can see the video here on Elliot's blog after the jump.  You can also find it on the Mormon Channel and YouTube.  It can also be seen in the Legacy Theater at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City and at some Church visitors' centers.  It's lengthy (just over an hour) but well worth your time.
