The producers of a documentary movie that made its national debut in Colorado Springs Tuesday night hope the film spark a world wide movement against poverty. It's called 58: The Film and is backed by the Springs-based child advocacy ministry Compassion International.
The documentary was shot over a period of two years in more than 15 counties following the victims of poverty and efforts by churches to help.
Producer Scott Todd hopes the project will be both moving and inspiring to audiences.
"I think that they will both be heartbroken and inspired and what I hope for them is that they take action and if they don't engage in authentic credible action to respond to these realities, we will have failed in our goal," Todd said.
The documentary will be shown in 50 cities across country later this as well as at 7,500 churches worldwide. Click here for more information on screenings or to host an event.
