LOS ANGELES, (christiansunite.com) -- Christian documentary 1040, produced by Adventures.TV in conjunction with Arowana Films, is scheduled to premiere at the 2010 City of the Angels Film Festival (CAFF) on Friday, March 12th. The film will be screened at The Directors Guild of America (DGA) in Hollywood at 7:00 PM, followed by a Q&A with the film's cast and crew and the official "1040" After Party.
1040 explores Christianity in the new Asia through the eyes of both Christians and non-Christians alike. Renowned minister and artist Jaeson Ma tours across China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Indonesia filming the dramatic changes taking place through interviews with top Christian ministers, Asian celebrities, artists, and entrepreneurs.
"The greatest move of God is happening in Asia today," stated Pastor Mike Bickle, founder of the International House of Prayer.
The film features well known prominent Christian leaders and missiologists such as Pastor Mike Bickle founder of the International House of Prayer, Loren Cunningham founder of Youth With a Mission, Steve Douglas President of Campus Crusade for Christ, Cindy Jacobs of Generals International, Dr. David Wang from Asian Outreach International, and other major leaders in the Body of Christ worldwide today.
Hip hop legend and minister MC Hammer, who is also featured in this film, stated, "The world is looking at Asia at this historical moment. With its economic rise, there is also a powerful spiritual movement that is spreading and transforming entire cultures."
In addition, Asian artists like Van Ness Wu, Jin the MC, and Sean from "Jinusean" are a few of the Asian celebrity figures who provide insight into the role of Christianity in the entertainment industry and how it is impacting popular culture and changing the lives of artists, celebrities and fans.
"With interviews and never-before-heard stories, 1040 sheds light on the incredible changes taking in Asia today," stated Ma. "The phenomenon it documents is profoundly significant to people of all backgrounds."
1040 refers to the area known as the "10/40 Window", a region between 10 degrees and 40 degrees north latitude that spans from North Africa to East Asia, where Christianity is currently spreading and reaching areas that in the past were predominantly Buddhist or Muslim.
Tickets for the premiere can be purchased online at www.caff.eventbrite.com for $10.00.
