Beating the Odds Foundation teamed up with the producers of “King’s Faith” to bring the teen inspirational drama to the State College community on June 27th.
About 115 people were in attendance for the one-night -only showing at the State Theatre.
“KING’S FAITH is about second chances, especially for those that many have overlooked,” said director Nicholas DiBella.
Ticket proceeds will benefit the Beating the Odds Foundation programs which encourage youth to overcome life’s obstacles.
KING’S FAITH (PG-13) tells the story of a foster couple who cares for Brendan King (Crawford Wilson), an 18-year old attempting to leave his turbulent gang life behind him, but his past continues to threaten his new-found faith, family, and future.
The film is produced by DiBella and Faith Street Film Partners LLC, a Rochester, NY-based collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters. The official website is www.kingsfaith.com
KING’S FAITH stars Emmy Award-winning actress Lynn Whitfield (Eve’s Bayou, The Women of Brewster Place), Crawford Wilson (Judging Amy, Zoey 101), Kayla Compton (Entourage), and James McDaniel (Malcolm X, NYPD Blue).
