A Powerful and Modern Telling of the Ten Commandments Arrives On DVD November 2nd
LOS ANGELES, CA. (November 2, 2010) – A film often described as the “faith-based CRASH,” I AM arrives on DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment today, November 2. The Ten Commandments as you’ve never seen them before provide the framework for this compelling drama set in the City of Angels. A desperate heiress... A beautiful reporter... A vengeful detective... A charismatic district attorney... In modern-day Los Angeles, all of their lives will intersect, leading to profound choices that will test each character’s morality and faith. With guidance from a mysterious stranger, these lost souls search for answers, only to discover that the path to salvation is closer than they ever could have imagined.
Hailed as “the ultimate love story” by renowned writer and director John Ward and endorsed by famed writer, journalist and former teaching pastor Lee Strobel, I AM is the first faith-based feature film to be screened exclusively for churches instead of movie theaters. This innovative release strategy is designed to welcome audiences from all walks of life, spur conversation and change the way people view faith-based films. With the backing of Twentieth Century Home Entertainment, filmmakers Ward and Zeile donated 2,000 free screenings to churches all across the United States, helping them to bring in new members and re-inspire disillusioned ones with this ground-breaking film. In a release that is historic in both size and scale, on October 10th over a million people from 2000 churches across the US, Canada and around the world will get the ultimate chance to experience I AM on screen, before it becomes available on DVD.
I AM features the original song “Say Goodbye,” by recording artist and actress Katharine McPhee (“American Idol,” The House Bunny), whose corresponding music video is exclusively on the DVD. In addition, the film features “Salvation is Here,” a song by widely respected Christian music artist Travis Ryan, who is renowned as a musician, worship leader and songwriter.
The DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $22.98 U.S. Pre-book is October 6.
