4PM is currently in production on 2 documentary films that bring light to the everyday struggles that young men, young women, and parents face today.
Project Light has been an awesome project to be a part of. We started with a modest goal of creating a film for girls that would be an authentic look at the challenges facing young women today. Our goal was $25,000 to produce this film. This film is the brainchild of two youth ministers in North Carolina who see a need to bring light into the darkness they saw in the lives of the youth they journey with. These two youth ministers began spreading the word and seeking funds and door after door began to open. The need was clear! After just two months they were able to far surpass their financial goal and added two more films to the list.
This project will follow the lives of young women in addition to interviews with Mary Bielski, Sr. Miriam James, Audrey Assad, Ben Walther, and more. It is incredibly powerful for teens to have a voice, share their struggles together, realize they are not alone. It is important to show how many other teens are struggling with the same issues, such as body image, the pressure to be perfect/ successful, dating, relationships, battles with lust, pornography & more.
We hope to provide resources that will be a launch pad for authentic conversations in homes, youth groups/small groups, & schools. Our vision is for these conversations to provide an alternative message to the one they are hearing through their culture and will help each teen believe in & remain firmly rooted in their identity as a beloved son/daughter of God.
