The Grandfathers - An Ethnographic Film - REVIEWED

About the Film:
A young man, deep in the Amazon jungle, searches for his identity while living with the primitive tribe that murdered his grandfather. The Grandfathers is a motion-graphics documentary by writer/director Jim Hanon and producer Mart Green. It completes the inspiring trilogy that began with Beyond the Gates of Splendor and was followed by End of the Spear. Jesse Saint struggles to find his place in a world dominated by the memory of a famous grandfather he never knew and a heroic father he cannot understand. Years spent among the Waodani and his friendship with the three men who took part in his grandfather’s murder teach him the healing power of dignity, respect and forgiveness. In the heart of the jungle, Jesse must confront his family’s past as he determines his own future. This documentary is a moving tribute to a young man’s quest for significance and purpose – and his remarkable impact on the three tribal elders who, unwittingly, are on a quest of their own.

My Thoughts:

You will never doubt the power of God's Word the the excitement of seeing lives transformed by Jesus' blood after veiwing The Grandfathers! This carries the story from The End of the Spear to yet another generation, and God is still working through the life of Jesse Saint - Nate Saint's grandson - to spread the gospel and change lives. Can you imagine spending time in the Amazon jungle with the people who murdered your family memebers? Well, Jesse Saint did just that, and the result was a transformation that only God could orchestrate. You don't want to miss this next installment of the documentary recording God's powerful work through the lives of the Saint family! I think God will use this film to transform other lives and encourage others into service for Him!!

Praise GOD!!
