Polished Edge: Strong Foundation releases ‘Seventy Times Seven’
SAN ANTONIO -- Strong Foundation Films, a faith-based movie company, is releasing its third motion picture in San Antonio, “Seventy Times Seven,” June 14. The film follows their recent success with “The Prophet’s Son” and “In Over My Head,” which grossed more than $14,000 per screen in its limited theater release. Strong Foundation Films, founded in Denver, Colo., has now made its way to San Antonio, and expects limited releases in other states this summer.
Love is the greatest commandment of all, especially when you are asked to love your enemy. “Seventy Times Seven” puts this scripture “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you” (Luke 6:27) to the extreme test when David Anderson faces one of the most devastating moments in his life. Will he be able to overcome evil with good? Or will he take vengeance into his own hands? Watch the “Seventy Times Seven” trailer at http://www.strongfoundationfilms.com/catalog/trailers.php.
Producer and Pastor Sun Hui East said, “The message in ‘Seventy Times Seven’ is a powerful, yet difficult, lesson for many to apply, but with this film I want people to know that it can be done, no matter what they have been through, with God’s help.”
The current trend of faith-based films having great success in the box office has shown that American audiences prefer movies with strong values and conservative content almost six-to-one to movies that do not have these contents. This has opened a new door of opportunity for many independent faith-based filmmakers.
“Our goal of movie making is two-fold,” said Pastor East. “First it is to minister to believers and nonbelievers through film. The second is to feed the hungry around the world.” Pastor East and her team are currently working on their eighth film in San Antonio, as well as feeding the homeless and the hungry in Mexico. Strong Foundation Films is also preparing to release its fourth film, “Golden Mind,” toward the end of summer or beginning of fall.
