‘Facing Darkness’ returns to cinemas tonight for encore screening
FACING DARKNESS is a new documentary that tells the story of how Samaritan’s Purse raced against time to rescue two of their own team stricken with the deadly Ebola virus.
SCREENING TIME: Monday, April 10, 2017; 7:00 p.m. local time
The incredible success of the initial screening via Fathom Events resulted in tonight’s encore screening, taking in $1.2 million at the box office for its March 30 one-night event.
The encore event, also one night, includes exclusive behind-the-scenes details from Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham and Ebola survivor Dr. Kent Brantly about the life-and-death struggle of Ebola in Liberia.
Tickets for “Facing Darkness” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.

“FACING DARKNESS inspires us to choose faith over fear as we see God at work, and we’re moved by the response,” Graham said. “This encore presentation on April 10 is another chance for people to experience the miracle and to bring others to see it.”
FACING DARKNESS—produced by Samaritan’s Purse; Executive Producer is Franklin Graham— recently won Best Documentary at the Christian Worldview Film Festival.
As the Ebola pandemic swept across West Africa in the spring of 2014, Samaritan’s Purse stepped up to provide comfort, compassion and care to the hurting people of Liberia . . . all in the Name of Jesus. When the deadly virus infected two of the organization’s team members—Brantly and Nancy Writebol—the crisis truly hit home for Samaritan’s Purse and its leader Franklin Graham. FACING DARKNESS tells the incredible true story of how—with faith, skill, determination and prayer—the organization worked around-the-clock to bring Brantly and Writebol home, all the while praying for a miracle.
FACING DARKNESS is directed by Arthur Rasco.
