"Come What May" In Harrisonburg July 12Jul 07, 2008
The Valley Family Forum, a grassroots chapter of The Family Foundation, is offering a special invitation to attend the Virginia premiere of a new pro-life feature film entitled Come What May at the Court Square Theater in Harrisonburg on Saturday, July 12, with showings only at 3:00 and 5:30 p.m. Tickets (and more about the movie) are available in advance through Advent Film Group (click here), with discounts for families of four or more. Tickets also can be purchased at the door on the day of the showing. Proceeds from the movie will be shared with several Valley pregnancy centers. The movie is about Caleb and Rachel, two championship debaters at Patrick Henry College, who are caught in a tug-of-war between their parents, their conscience, their own budding romance, and Supreme Court differences over abortion and parental rights. The judges are stacked against them, but the greatest debate takes place before they ever enter the courtroom. The cast includes several Harrisonburg residents.
Prior to the second screening, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m., The Valley Family Forum will host a special reception. There is an additional charge for the reception and reservations are required. For more information, and to make reservations, contact 540-433-1577.
Come What May is produced by a new group of Virginia-based filmmakers who are committed to promoting Christian values through film. Director/Producer George Escobar is a Hollywood trained filmmaker who will be present at the premiere and the reception to introduce the movie and speak to guests. Also scheduled to attend are Escobar's co-producer, the screenwriter and several members of the cast.
This is the first of a series of movies planned for production over the next four years. The goal is not only to produce high quality family films but also to prepare a new generation of Christian filmmakers capable of producing and directing films like the highly successful Amazing Grace and Tales of Narnia series.
