About the Movie

Brother White is a heartwarming fish-out-of-water comedy about the power of faith and forgiveness. Packed with soulful sounds of gospel music, a guest-star performance by GRAMMY Award-winning artist Bebe Winans, and a choir that raises the roof with messages of strength, support and praise, Brother White tells the story of an associate pastor at a rich mega-church in Southern California who is assigned to a small community church in an inner-city Atlanta neighborhood.

James White (played by David A.R. White [Evening Shade,” Jerusalem Countdown, Me Again]) is one of dozens of associate pastors at his church under the tutelage of televangelist Johnny Kingman (Ray Wise,Twin Peaks). Rev. White has always longed to have his own church and jumps at the opportunity to become pastor of the impoverished Divine Faith Apostolic Church in Atlanta. His wife Lily White (Logan White) and two children, Emma (Anna Margaret) and Cooper (Gibson Sjobeck) are not enthusiastic about his new assignment. Neither is the congregation at the Divine Faith Apostolic Church, but with the help of Deacon Hill (Reginald VelJohnson, [Family Matters, Die Hard]), they will have to pull together to save the church from a corrupt banker who is anxious to foreclose. When Pastor White delivers the news to the former first lady of the church, Veena (Emmy Award-winning actress Jackée, [227, Sister Sister]), that he can deliver Bebe Winans to perform at the church fundraiser, trust and a new faith begin to transform between the White family and the congregation.

Brother White is a PureFlix Entertainment production in association with gmc. Brian Herzlinger (My Date with Drew) is the director. Sean Paul Murphy, Matt Richards and Tommy Blaze wrote the screenplay. The film is produced by Anna Zielinski, David A.R. White, Russell Wolfe, Michael Scott and Elizabeth Travis.
