Christian Singer Sean Feucht's Religious Freedom Documentary Coming to Theaters
The film focuses on a series of concerts the worship leader put on in defiance of lockdown orders during the coronavirus outbreak in 2020.
At the height of fear over the pandemic and violent protests connected to the death of George Floyd at the hands of police, Sean Feucht launched a Christian worship music tour across the country, touching off great resistance from both government and brownshirt-style leftist street mobs. Now the former worship leader of California's Bethel Church will tell the story in Superspreader.
The provocative title of the documentary echoes the accusation leveled at his concert-like events by political leaders and their civilian brothers in arms, both of whom warned against mass gatherings and often tried to stop them with lockdowns and the threat of arrest on the part of the former, and protests and even violence by the latter. Feucht dubbed his movement Let Us Worship, and was determined to keep "sharing the Gospel, no matter the cost," as promotional material for the documentary puts it.
A trailer for the film features footage of the outdoor worship gatherings, interviews with popular conservatives like radio host Eric Metaxas and U.S. Senator Josh Hawley, and plenty of news clips from the time of the pandemic showing politicians announcing said lockdowns, social distancing and more: the governor of California even banned singing in churches.
It is that restrictive measure that seems to have been the catalyst for Feucht's worship music campaign, because when he heard the news, his response was, "Okay, it's on." A devout Christian who is no stranger to politics - in 2020, he unsuccessfully ran for Congress as a Republican in his home state of California - the father of four pushes both standing up for religious freedom and sharing the good news of salvation through Christ in this documentary.
The film will be released by Iconic Events, a distributor that focuses on pay-per-view combat sports and music shows, but also released the faith-based film My Brother's Keeper last year. Superspreader hits theaters on August 19th and you can check out the trailer below to get a better feel for what to expect.
