Drawing thousands of Chinese Christians in the greater-Vancouver area, the premier of the monumental documentary “Beyond”, which tells the stories of overseas Chinese Christians, was premiered in Evangelical Chinese Bible Church in Vancouver from January 29-30, 2011.
Two episodes of the nine episode documentary were shown during the two-night event. The titles of the nine episodes are “Farewell to the Homeland”, “Wanderers of the World”, “Overseas Learning Trail”, “A Dream in Brazil”, “Healing in Washington”, “The Legend of San Francisco”, “The Spring of Vancouver”, “Internet Bride in Phoenix”, “Ageless Love in San Francisco”, “The Unfinished Story of New York.”
China Soul Association President Rev. Yuan Zhiming, who is also the chief director of the film, preached during the two nights of the documentary premier, leading hundreds in Vancouver to faith in Jesus Christ and inspiring believers to dedicate their lives for missions.
Since late October of last year, “Beyond” premiers began in the major cities in North America and Australia, including Washington D.C., San Francisco, Dallas, San Jose, Los Angeles, Sydney, and Melbourne. At each event, the film has brought wide-spread response from the audiences, saying how their lives were greatly touched by the film, as reported on various media outlets.
Produced over a period of three years, “Beyond” is a documentary that reflects the gripping journeys of faith by overseas Chinese. It documents the vivid stories from dozens of Chinese living in Europe, Australia, and North and South America through a series of nine episodes, about nine hours long, featuring students, engineers, entrepreneurs, pastors, lawyers, internet brides, stowaways, gamblers, and even murderers.
“Beyond” is produced by China Soul for Christ Foundation, which has also produced the sensational TV topical serial The Gospel, the modern church classic The Cross-Jesus in China (translated into 18 languages and selected as course material by Yale University) and the Foundation's epic China's Confession, all of which have made a tremendous spiritual impact in both Mainland China and abroad.
Beginning January 1, 2011, “Beyond” has been available for purchase in packages of the entire nine episodes, $60 USD, or in individual episodes, $10 USD. Orders can be made from China Soul Association’s website at www.chinasoul.org.
