Coming Soon to Theaters: The Divine Plan

This movie came across our desks recently and we felt that we should share it with our audience. It’s perfect for homeschooling families, those who love politics and history buffs! It’s a new way to look at the Cold War – through the lens of faith! Check it out.  -The Radiant Lit Team

Launching in theaters with a one-night-only Fathom Event on November 6, THE DIVINE PLAN shares the captivating parallels between the lives of President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II.

In a partnership that changed the world, the film poses the question: Was the pontiff and the politician’s work overthrowing communism the result of inexorable political and economic forces, or could if have been part of what  Reagan called “the divine plan?”

 

Tickets for THE DIVINE PLAN can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com and at participating theater box offices.

Also included in this special one-night-only event is an exclusive in-depth Q&A with filmmaker Robert Orlando and author Paul Kengor, filmed at The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture. This exclusive footage will only be available to be viewed during the theatrical screening on November 6.

Created by visionary director Robert Orlando (APOSTLE PAUL: A Polite Bribe, SILENCE PATTON: First Victim of the Cold War), the feature-length documentary unveils both the religious and political history that shaped the passions of these two world leaders. By probing deep into the shadows of the Cold War, Orlando and those interviewed expose events that support a vivid and
uncommon mission during this fragile chapter of human history. THE DIVINE PLAN blurs the lines of conventional documentary filmmaking as the scenes play out through a combination of interviews with historians and experts, audio and video archives, and illustrations that blend graphic novel illustrations with cold war era Soviet propaganda.

“We live in a superhero world, and even our historical figures require captivating graphic arts to

hold the audience’s interest,” explains Orlando. “Reagan and JPII were mythical figures because they stood for values that transcended their lifetimes. And their battle was with a clear nemesis, the Soviet Union, a struggle that has not gone away, but gone cyber!”

Reagan and John Paul II’s relationship and extraordinary bond has often been described as being directed by a higher power. The striking similarities in their lives cannot be downplayed. The two grew up on separate continents, but from their struggles in childhood to their early careers in the arts, from a youthful passion for their faith in God to influencing the world at large, their stories seem uncannily linked. This extends to 1981, when their stories became permanently entwined. The Pope and the President were both shot by would-be assassins a mere six weeks apart. After recovering from their near fatal injuries, these two leaders of unmatched influence confided in each other in a shared belief that God spared their lives to be the catalysts to defeat communism and end the cold war.

Don’t miss this one night only Fathom Special Event! THE DIVINE PLAN features interviews with some of the greatest minds on the topics of the Cold War, Catholic History, and Presidential Politics.
