The documentary focuses on the life and times of Sam Childers, the preacher whose unorthodox methods of charity work have spiked controversy. In the new documentary, the true story of Sam Childers is revealed, not the Hollywood version. It illustrates the real life challenges that Sam experienced in Africa and the US and to a certain extent today. Tribal wars in the South Sudan have once again put children in grave danger so the effort to save them is as important as ever. Sam is committed to save these children in harm’s way. The Angels of East Africa have saved over 1,000 children, built six orphanages, farms and schools. The Machine Gun Preacher Documentary benefits Angels of East Africa’s work in South Sudan, Uganda, & Ethiopia.
“I ask you, if a mad man came in and abducted your child and I said to you I can bring your child home… does it matter how I bring them home?” — Sam Childers.
“People will be inspired by this film,” says Lise Romanoff, Managing Director and CEO of Worldwide Distribution at Vision Films. “Children are being enslaved in Southern Sudan. It demonstrates how one single individual can make a big difference.”
