About the film:

Can the Holy Spirit Direct a Movie?

In this fast-paced documentary from the director of the popular films Finger of GodFurious Love, and Father of Lights, Darren Wilson sets out to make a movie that is completely led by the Holy Spirit. No plan, no script, no safety net — just go wherever he feels the Spirit leading him to try and discover the adventure God has for him. Whether it’s the riches of Monte Carlo, a heavy metal concert, or the oldest city in world, the result is a film that not only challenges and excites, but also reveals a God who is far more alive and active than you ever imagined.

The movie features big names such as Lenny Kravitz, Brain “Head” Welch (of Korn), Bill Johnson, Michael W. Smith, Todd White, Meredith Andrews, DeVon Franklin, William P. Young, Phil Vischer, and many more! They are names you might expect, and others you don't.

Check out the official website and check out the trailer:

I think it's important to hear again, why Darren made this movie:

In Darren’s own words: “Growing up in a fairly traditional evangelical church and community, I always viewed the Holy Spirit as this almost unknowable, vapor-like being that I could never relate to. But if He is truly a Person of the Trinity, then it stands to reason that the Holy Spirit has a personality, and that is ultimately what I want to explore in this new film. Can we take away some of the mystery and honestly explore who He really is? Can we be honest that some of the church has wholly ignored Him, while some of the church has been somewhat abusive with Him? Can we cut through much of the misunderstanding and fear people have of the Holy Spirit, and learn to embrace Him no matter what might come out the other side? Can we learn to truly partner with the Holy Spirit in love, power, and grace for a world that is dying for something real? That’s what we’re going to try to accomplish with this film.”

The crew had SO much material,that the deluxe DVD has 5 hours MORE of video! The crew is also taking to the road, with stops in 15 cities, for a night of togetherness and healing- check out the website for more info! Be sure to check out the movies Facebook page for more bonus material too! 


Review:

This movie will move you in ways you may not expect. It is a valid answer to the question posed in anotehr documentary- 'Is God dead?". In this totally unscripted tale, you will see just how the holy spirit DOES reside in each of us, and how we share him with others, bringing God into their lives via physical healing or an emotional reaction. This story will move you, surprise you and make you question what you think you know and what you have been taught. I think to me the most surprising section was at the Korn concert. Seeing how the musicians had already changed, and how they were further changed, makes you step back and see how God's grace comes when we least expect it. The changes it brought about on the concert tour is amazing and shows how it just takes one person to make a change that has a domino effect. It is a movie you will find yourself watching again and again.

This is a wonderful dvd to share with your congregation,youth  group or bible study group. It will produce sharing and may open doors previously un-thought of. We give it our highest recommendation!
