BEYOND THE SUN

Four child actors of 'Beyond the Sun' grapple with search for God.

Written and directed by Graciela Rodriguez Gilio, Beyond the Sunstars child actors Aiden Cumming-Teicher, Cory Gruter-Andrew, Emma Duke, Kyle Breitkopf, and Sebastiάn Alexander Chou, in a modern-day tale of hope, faith and courage based on stories from the Bible. The film chronicles the adventures of four young friends in search of God. The uplifting story is intended to spiritually engage and encourage audiences of all ages to transmit Jesus’ words, to understand them and integrate them to live a better life, make good choices and help others.

The film, which received the pope’s participation and blessing, will donate all profits to Los Hogares de Cristo and El Almendro. These charities, close to Pope Francis’ heart, are located in his home country of Argentina and provide aid to at-risk children and young adults.

Beyond the Sun releases May 15.

As well, producers are hosting a contest to send a family of four to Rome. Contestants can vie for the opportunity to win by visiting the website:www.freetriptorome.com
