Hope Channel International, a Christian global media network, is premiering on its digital platform a new animation film that is expected to challenge the norms of the animation industry.
The Great Controversy will be released exclusively on the network's 3AM: Morning is Coming YouTube channel on May 19, 2023.
The film's unique approach explores the timeless struggle between good and evil through the story of Naomi, a young girl whose life choices have an impact on her relationships with her brother and boyfriend. Viewers are taken on a journey through the history of the world and shown how the ongoing conflict between good and evil impacts every decision.
The Great Controversy is aimed at 18-to-35-year-olds and has been produced as a response to the question many people have about God's goodness in the face of bad things happening. The film promises to be intriguing for all who see it and is designed to resonate with audiences in a postmodern context.
"We are thrilled to bring this vitally important story to life through the power of animation," says Derek Morris, president of Hope Channel International. "With its timeless themes and a powerful message, we believe that The Great Controversy will inspire and equip the next generation to spread the Gospel and bring hope to a world in need."
The film is part of Hope Channel International's 3AM: Morning is Coming brand, which aims to proclaim the three angels’ messages through digital distribution. Through innovative animation, The Great Controversy brings the Bible to life and enables viewers to explore the battle between good and evil in a way that has never been seen before.
"I am delighted that Hope Channel International is bringing this amazing film to the world," shares Justin Woods, director of Digital Distribution at HCI. "At such a time as this, when it seems that each day brings some new calamity, this film will help eliminate one of the biggest obstacles that non-Christians have to believing in the God of the Bible: 'How could a good God let bad things happen?'"
The animation film has already captured audiences worldwide with its stunning visuals and compelling storyline. Winner of prestigious awards at the Madrid Arthouse Film Festival, Montreal Independent Film Festival, and WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival, The Great Controversy is a must-see for animation enthusiasts and film aficionados alike.
