EMANUEL highlights how a horrible tragedy can bring a community together, and spreads an important message about the power of forgiveness. I hope the film inspires others like it does me.”
Stephen Curry, Executive Producer
“Powerful. Moving. Important. It’s incredible how people can respond to tragedy when Jesus reigns in their hearts! I recommend EMANUEL.”
Alex Kendrick, Director, Author
“The Bible has much to say on forgiveness, which is why the Museum of the Bible was honored to host a screening of the documentary EMANUEL. Its emphasis on radical grace has the potential to bridge gaps that seem too vast, and to spark dialogue where there has been silence.”
Ken McKenzie, CEO and President Museum of the Bible
“We, along with the country, grieved each family’s loss. Yet, miraculously, from this devastation we witnessed tremendous benchmarks of humanity. The survivors found courage to love in the face of hate.”
Viola Davis and Julius Tennon, Executive Producers
“I want to encourage you to see the new extraordinary and outstanding documentary called EMANUEL. It is a movie about the power of forgiveness—to set you free, set our nation free, and set our Church free. To turn the world upside down and be right side up for Jesus.”
Bishop Frank Madison Reid III AME Church
EMANUEL is a powerful documentary that will remind the world of the power of forgiveness, defusing division within our culture and uniting us to love one another.”
Shari Rigby, Actor, Director
"The documentary EMANUEL reminds us of the crushing effects that hatred and racism continue to have in this country. But forgiveness is a balm that heals like no other. Through those whose lives were shattered by this tragedy, we see that redemption and restoration is possible for anyone. The realities and challenges of life in this current age cry out for EMANUEL."
Rev. Dexter U. Nutall, Senior Pastor, New Bethel Baptist Church
"We pray that the story of EMANUEL, the documentary, will serve the redemptive purpose for which the word “forgive” helped to save a city and a state. It is our fondest hope and prayer that all who seek spaces of spiritual discipline and contemplation will courageously continue the search, actively pursuing vigil and political vigilance so that we can one day pray and think without the threat of death or harm for reasons of our faith or ethnicity."
Adam J. Richardson, Jr., Senior Bishop, African Methodist Episcopal Church
