About the Film
After Thanksgiving dinner, Bart Campolo asked his dad, the well-known preacher Tony Campolo, to sit down to talk. Bart wanted to give his father some unsettling news: that after a lifetime of work as a prominent minister himself, he was no longer a believer in the Christian faith. It was the beginning of a painful but meaningful exchange between a father and his son about belief, storytelling and the power of our relationships. Coming this Spring.
The film is currently in the final stages of post-production. Watch this site for updates and news! And please leave us your email if you’d like to receive updates when it's ready to watch (you will not be spammed by this site).
