Hello to our BLJ media friends!   As the film opened this weekend in a lot of new cities, we’re coming to you, as supporters of BLJ, to help us with a new campaign – perhaps in blogs or news bytes.

As many of you know, this is the first Christian film ever where you can grab a diverse group of friends and acquaintances and experience meaningful conversation and debate. It’s the first time a Christian film hasn’t given you all the answers.


The dialogue that #BlueLikeJazz has ignited is remarkable and wide-spread, and here’s one small example:

This story shows that this film connects on so many diverse levels.  Who do you think would find themselves somewhere in this movie?:
1. Someone from your small group?
2. Someone from your work/school?
3. That guy/girl you always see in the coffee shop?
4. A college student?
5. Your friend who stopped going to church?
-What kind of conversation would you have after the film?
-TAKE 5 people to see Blue Like Jazz this week and find out.

When you do, please share your story at take5bluelikejazz.com

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
