Hillsong - Let Hope Rise ~ Movie Trailer

Hillsong ~ Let Hope Rise
in theaters nationwide September 16, 2016

Directed by Michael-John Warren (Jay-Z's Fade to Black), HILLSONG - LET HOPE RISE chronicles the spectacular & miraculous rise of the Australia-based band, Hillsong UNITED, to prominence.


“HILLSONG-LET HOPE RISE is so much more than a film about a Christian band or even a
church. It is truly a theatrical worship experience,” said Michael Scott, chief production officer
and a founding partner of Pure Flix. “It is a dream come true for us, as a studio committed to
influencing the global culture, to partner with a church like Hillsong.”

“Anyone who regularly attends a church knows Hillsong’s music by heart. That’s how influential
they’ve become,” said producer Jonathan Bock. “And yet despite the fame and adulation, they’re
still just a humble worship band trying to do what tens of thousands of other worship bands try to
do every week -- glorify God through their music. How they balance that is a fascinating and
surprising story.”

From a single church in suburban Sydney, Hillsong Church now extends to cities on five
continents (including London, Paris, Sao Paulo, Capetown, Rio de Janeiro, and Phoenix) with
more than 100,000 weekly attendees, including thriving congregations in New York and Los
Angeles. In addition to its local church initiatives, Hillsong partners with international
organizations committed to ministry – examples include feeding and educating children in the
slums of India, building housing for those living with AIDS in Africa and rescuing victims of
human trafficking around the globe.

“We’re thrilled that Pure Flix, the No. 1 producer of faith films in the U.S., is our partner on this
project,” said Brian Houston, founding pastor of Hillsong Church. “It’s our hope that by sharing
an up-close and unvarnished look inside our music and lives, we can shatter pre-conceived
notions of what it means to follow Jesus in today’s modern world.”
