Facing Darkness


"This movie is a powerful story of the human spirit at its best. A story of an epidemic that could have been even more catastrophic than it was, had it not been for those who courageously and selflessly determined to do all they could in spite of extreme danger. A must see!"
Steve Green, President of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

Aaron Shust, Christian Recording Artist and Worship Leader

Todd Starnes, Fox News Channel
"Here's the incredible and inspiring true story of how God used Samaritan's Purse and Dr. Kent Brantly to serve the people of West Africa during the Ebola crisis. Kent and his wife Amber are truly heroes of the faith! Franklin Graham and his team have created a powerful documentary that will encourage you to serve Jesus wherever He places you—no matter the cost!"
Lee Strobel, author of the #1 bestseller The Case for Christ (soon a movie)
"FACING DARKNESS is a spellbinding, inspiring and 100% true story of how faith in God can literally conquer death. I strongly recommend it to every Christian who needs a reminder that the Lord is in control now and forever."

"FACING DARKNESS is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen … it moved me to tears. Loved, loved, loved it! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially pastors and ministry leaders."
Pastor Brian Alarid, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Regional Manager, Lead Pastor, Passion Church (Albuquerque)
"Some documentaries tell a story, statically. Other documentaries, like this one, call us to action, to aid those who are helpless, and to answer when called. FACING DARKNESS will challenge you to think about what you fear, and to stand up with resolution in the face of that fear. In fact, FACING DARKNESS will dare you to not be afraid anymore."
Jacob Sahms, Christian Cinema
"FACING DARKNESS was amazing, heartwarming, disturbing, and tragic—all at the same time. A must-see film."
Mike Gamblin, Homeschool Companion
"What an incredible true story about love and faith in the face of such grave danger! Dr. Kent Brantly and his team showed fierce courage and miraculous faith treating so many who were infected with such a killer like Ebola. Jesus said there is no greater love that that of someone willing to lay down his life. That is what this movie and Samaritan's Purse is all about. Go watch this movie and be prepared to be inspired and challenged to do what Jesus commanded us to do."
Phil and Al Robertson
"This movie is the true and compelling story of those who risked everything to love their neighbor as themselves. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see a powerful expression of God’s love in action."
Skip Heitzig, Senior Pastor, Calvary Albuquerque
"FACING DARKNESS highlights several of the true heroes who literally put their lives on the line for the thousands of West Africans stricken with Ebola back in 2014. This is a film that clearly displays what it means to sacrificially live for a higher purpose and calling."
Bob Waliszewski, Director, Focus on the Family's Plugged In
"FACING DARKNESS is a film that grips the heart and brilliantly shines the light of life through the faith and steadfast love of modern-day martyrs. Vessels of clay broken so that Jesus' light might illumine the darkness through the power of faith. Every Christian should not only see and promote FACING DARKNESS—they should take those living in darkness to see it! Maybe their eyes will be open to see that Jesus is the light of life—in Him there is no darkness."
Kay Arthur, Co-Founder, Precept Ministries International
"Moving and inspiring, FACING DARKNESS is a touching depiction of faith, courage, and grace."
Nell Minow, Beliefnet's Move Mom
"'Who is my brother?' We might discover the answer to this question while FACING DARKNESS ... and finding light. This is a compelling saga of faith and miracles shining hope into the midst of despair. The Good Samaritan is personified in this compelling retelling of how God used the Samaritan's Purse ministry of Franklin Graham to foster the miraculous healing victims of Ebola in Liberia."
Alveda King, Evangelist, Director, Civil Rights for the Unborn
