New EGM Film, The Grandfathers, Now Available
Posted by on February 24, 2011 in
EGM Films is pleased to announce the release of The Grandfathers, a motion-graphics film about the struggle and influence of a young man’s heritage. The Grandfathers completes a trilogy that includes End of the Spear and Beyond the Gates of Splendor. These first two films, also from award-winning director Jim Hanon and producer Mart Green, tell the unforgettable and inspiring story of the killing of five missionaries by an indigenous tribe, deep in the Amazon jungle. The impact of this tragic event lives on today, in the families of these slain men and among those responsible for their deaths.
The Grandfathers chronicles the personal quest for greater connectedness and significance. It is also a moving tribute to ordinary people living extraordinary lives in extreme situations. Jim Hanon, the director, states, “Forgiveness is an awe-inspiring virtue that seems to have been passed on by the Saint family and is shared by many among the Waodani tribe—both demonstrate a profound capacity for forgiveness and healthy self-healing.”
This inspirational film has been awarded The Dove Foundation seal of approval.
