Telling the incredible stories of the victims and the survivors of the Charleston church shooting, EMANUEL will amaze you with its powerful depiction of grace and forgiveness.
Pastor Tim Keller recently shared with director Brian Ivie the difference between forgiveness and vengeance—and why it’s important to choose forgiveness. Watch this now and then make your plans for next Monday or Wednesday! The producers of EMANUEL (including Stephen Curry, Academy® Award-winner Viola Davis, and Emmy® Award-winner Mariska Hargitay) are donating their proceeds from the movie to the survivors and the families of the victims of the Charleston shooting. That’s another important reason to get your tickets and experience EMANUEL in theaters next Monday or Wednesday.
