LORD SAVE US FROM YOUR FOLLOWERS – IN THEATERS TOMORROW IN SELECT MARKETS

COLUMBUS OH, COLORADO SPRINGS, MINNEAPOLIS, DALLAS AND GRAND RAPIDS OPEN FILM, PREPARING FOR UPCOMING DVD RELEASE

The documentary that Variety calls “Admirably bold…It would take a hard heart indeed not to be moved” and USA Today described as  “Michael Moore-meets-Monty Python.  A humorous and heartfelt examination of the culture wars” is back in theaters briefly while preparing for it’s long awaited DVD release.

Beginning tomorrow, Feburary 26, Lord Save Us will be showing theatrically in:
Dallas – Cinemark Grand Prairie
Minneapolis – Mall of the Americas
Colorado Springs – Cinemark Tinseltown
Columbus, OH – Marcus Crossroads
Grand Rapids – Celebration Cinema Rivertown

Dan Merchant is an award-winning writer/director who set out to start a conversation – “why is the Gospel of Love dividing America?”    After talking with scores of men and women on streets all across the nation, as well as interviewing many well-known active participants in today’s “Culture Wars,” he realized that the public discussion of faith doesn’t have to be contentious.

The documentary features exclusive interviews with Senator Al Franken, former Senator and religious right ally Rick Santorum, NY Times best-selling author, William Paul Young (The Shack), noted liberal evangelical Tony Campolo, conservative radio host Michael Reagan and racial reconciliation activist Dr. John Perkins, as well as news clips of Bono, Bill Maher, Bill O’Reilly, Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, George Clooney, Pastor Rick Warren (The Purpose Driven Life), and evangelists James Dobson, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson.  Balanced with humor and insight, the film leaves no stone unturned in presenting a refreshingly amicable examination of religious warfare and the numerous hot-button issues that come along with it.

Hollywood Reporter called the film “Moving and Memorable,” the Chicago Sun Times proclaimed, “Lord, Save Us aims to raise the level of religious discourse…a convincing argument for civil debate”, while The Oregonian described the film as “A peace offering, not a battle cry.” “A brilliant documentary,” exclaimed the San Antonio Express News, and the Dove Foundation said, “Five out of Five.  We gladly encourage viewers to make use of this important film.  It could be life changing.”

Lord Save Us From Your Followers will be releasing on DVD, April 20, 2010

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

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.
