Hillsong United on screen

2009-10-23 00:00

INTERNATIONAL Christian music sensation Hillsong United makes its South African big-screen debut on November 18 at 8 pm at all Nu Metro cinemas.

The film features the band’s The I Heart Revolution project in Hillsong United: We’re All In This Together, and a series of new songs documents its cross-cultural journey through six continents, 42 nations and 93 cities where they encounter people of faith addressing ­human slavery, child soldiers, displaced refugees, extreme poverty and other ­global concerns.

Filmed over three years, the documentary follows the band as it is confronted by stories of individuals facing injustice and hardships around the globe.

“It’s a story made up of many stories, told by many voices, and no individual voice is any more or any less important than any other,” says lead singer Joel Houston. “Yet every voice working together ultimately tells the one story — a story that involves everyone; that captures our collective and idiosyncratic purpose in one.”

Hillsong United began in Sydney, Australia, as the youth movement in Hillsong Church. Over a decade later, the band travels globally with a message of hope.
