Special Fathom Features: The big screen premiere of Facing Darkness includes exclusive insights from Franklin Graham, Dr. Kent Brantly and the Samaritan’s Purse team.
Fathom Events and Samaritan’s Purse are proud to present the compelling documentary, Facing Darkness, a True Story of Faith: Saving Dr. Brantly from Ebola in Africa, in select cinemas nationwide for a special one-night event on Thursday, March 30.
In the spring of 2014, while the world stood by as Ebola consumed West Africa, one ministry stepped forward to provide aid and comfort. When two of their own medical personnel became infected with Ebola, Samaritan’s Purse, led by Franklin Graham, sprang into action to attempt the impossible – transport and cure. With only faith and determination, this is the story of how a committed team moved mountains to make way for a miracle.
Following this moving story, audiences will hear from Samaritan’s Purse President, Franklin Graham, and Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American to survive Ebola, regarding their time in Africa, the organization’s mission and their lives since the high drama of the epidemic.
For individuals, groups and families, Facing Darkness gives names and faces to the tension that gripped the world in history’s deadliest disease outbreak--and the faith that stood in its path.
