Irreplaceable, one of the largest initiatives that Focus on the Family has ever undertaken, will be presented one night only in more than 700 select movie theaters around the country.
The feature length documentary film follows Tim Sisarich, formerly with Focus on the Family New Zealand, as he goes on a quest around the world to take a genuine look at the issues affecting families most.
“Irreplaceable conveys the importance of family,” says James Mhoon, Vice President of Content Development and Integration at Focus. “The film explores how families work to form and shape us, for better or for worse. It takes a sobering, honest view at the reality too many families nowadays face – the brokenness, the devaluing of marriage and children. But it still ends on an inspirational note, because Irreplaceable also explores how to solve many of today’s social ills that surround the family; it challenges us to be part of the solution. Many viewers will find that empowering.”
During his journey, Sisarich speaks with both experts and “real people” who have overcome challenges and are now on the other side.
Some of the experts Sisarich speaks with include:
For the one-night-only event, Focus on the Family will debut Irreplaceable on May 6 at 7:30 p.m. local time. The movie will culminate with a pre-recorded round-table discussion featuring prominent faith leaders and several family experts. This conversation will be hosted by Focus on the Family President Jim Daly and will include movie host Tim Sisarich.
In the weeks leading up to the event, Focus is calling on “family champions” to not only buy tickets for themselves, but to consider making May 6 into a community night.
“Invite your family and friends. Encourage your small group members to come and buy a block of tickets. Post the trailer on your social media accounts,” says Mhoon.
Supporters are also encouraged to get their church involved and to help spread the word with the resources that are available at www.IrreplaceableTheMovie.com (under the “Resources” tab).
Irreplaceable is the first in a series of documentaries Focus on the Family plans to release.
