Facing Darkness in Select Canadian Theatres April 3rd for Encore Showing

Facing Darkness

Synopsis: Facing Darkness

Dr. Kent Brantly never set out to be famous. The 36-year-old physician started medical school 14 years ago with the idea to treat patients in obscure areas of the world—areas with little access to medical care—where the limelight rarely visits.

He only realized his “celebrity” when Samaritan’s Purse suggested he write a statement for the world as he was released from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after recovering from the Ebola virus in 2014. He contracted the deadly disease in Liberia while working as a Post-Resident physician with World Medical Mission, the medical arm of Samaritan’s Purse.

His harrowing and heroic tale is the subject of the documentary “Facing Darkness” premiering in theaters for a one-day event Thursday, March 30 and now an encore performance on April 3rd. Produced by Samaritan’s Purse, the film shows the difficult choices Christians face when they say yes to Christ and serve others even in the midst of mortal danger.
