NEW DOCUMENTARY REVEALS GOD IS ALIVE!
Spanish filmmakers bring powerful film to the United States April 25th to inspire Eucharistic Revival
MADRID, SPAIN - March 16, 2022 – The new Bosco Films and Hakuna Films feature documentary film ALIVE, directed by Jorge Pareja and produced by Paul Bautista is set to release in movie theaters nationwide this Easter season via Fathom Events on Monday, April 25. The one-night-only documentary arrives in the United States after a powerful international release that inspired audiences toward Eucharistic revival.
ALIVE is a Spanish produced documentary film that brings forward the compelling testimony of five men and women with four unique stories of how their lives were transformed by the True Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist: God alive. These true stories are told by real people and propose that audiences consider their testimony and the power of God in the hidden Christ contained in a white host, something many cannot see or discern and have never known. Watch the trailer here:
“One of the charisms of Hakuna is reaching the distant ones and one of the ways of reaching distant people is through movies,” said Father Jose Pedro Manglano, founder of the Hakuna movement. “That is why we decided to make ALIVE.”
“This is not just a movie, but an opportunity for a movement toward greater Eucharistic devotion and something that can help create a spark of revival in the United States,” said Lucía González-Barandiarán, founder of Bosco Films. “ALIVE has been and continues to be a complete surprise, a simple documentary without pretense that reached the top 10 box office in Spain and Mexico. We truly believe that the world is in need of hope and that’s what this movie brings. It has already transformed many by its simplicity and has created a revolution. Now, our desire is to tug on the heartstrings of American audiences.”
As part of the documentary film experience, filmmakers have included bonus content, “A Conversation About the Power of the Eucharist.” After the documentary presentation of ALIVE, filmmakers will take audience-goers a little deeper for a conversation about the power of the Eucharist, the true Presence of Jesus Christ including testimony about the transforming power of God made present in the Eucharist at Catholic Masses and on altars around the world.
“When we released ALIVE in Spain and other countries, we saw a powerful movement where the Church wanted to use this film to inspire people to truly know the power of the Eucharist and that He in fact is alive!” said Lucía González-Barandiarán. “We encourage Catholic priests, religious and families to embrace this film in the United States - see it together - and lead people back to the power of God in the Holy Eucharist.”
ALIVE will serve as a tool for Catholic dioceses, parishes, ministries and families to share the message of Jesus Christ present in the Eucharist at a time when the world is in great need of the light, hope and power of Jesus Christ.
Tickets for ALIVE can be purchased at Fathom Events or participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in select movie theaters; for a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
