New Documentary About Haywood Street Fresco Launches “Host A Screening” Campaign

March 4, 2021

If your church is looking for a creative, uplifting, and socially-distant programming opportunity for this Lenten season and beyond, check out the new documentary, Theirs Is The Kingdom.
At the intersection of faith and art, the film follows the rare creation of a contemporary fresco mural inside the sanctuary of the Haywood Street Congregation UMC in Asheville, NC.  This is a painting not of the rich and powerful, but of people battling homelessness, addiction, and mental illness.  From first sketch to final unveiling, the viewer witnesses the difficulties of this ancient artistic technique while also meeting an ensemble cast of rich, complex characters.
The film team is launching a “Host A Screening” campaign to bring the story to communities and congregations around Western North Carolina. They’ve created a screening kit that includes all the tools necessary to host a successful event, either virtually or in-person: Discussion guide (created in conjunction with Haywood Street), digital download, license to publicly exhibit the film, and marketing materials to promote event.
Also, you can watch an exclusive 12-minute “sneak peek” clip here:
