Documentary THE HEART OF MAN Returns to Theaters by Popular Demand This October
Due to popular demand, "The Heart of Man" returns to cinemas for an encore event on Tuesday, October 17 th , 2017 at 7 p.m. local time. After performing third at the box office the day of its first showing with the second highest per-screen average, audiences will have another chance to see this event on the big screen. This cinematic retelling of the parable of the prodigal son, juxtaposed with interviews of real people struggling with distractions from their faith and the shame that follows addiction, was uniquely produced to bring people together to understand they are not alone and that each of them have the opportunity to re-connect with their faith, family and one another.
"We're blown away by the tens of thousands of people that came out and filled theaters in almost every major city throughout the country!," says Jason Pamer, filmmaker and executive producer of Sypher Studios. "The response was visceral, and left people with a sense of urgency. We're extending this further to reach an even wider audience in the encore screening so every person who attended the Sept. 14 event can spread the word to their friends and expose them to freedom of shame and our broken, moralistic and religious way of thinking and relating to God and to others."
Presented as a special one-night encore event by Sypher Studios, in partnership with Fathom Events, audiences will enjoy an exclusive roundtable conversation with national thought-leaders such as Los Angeles based pastor Chad Veach, best-selling author of "The Shack" William Paul Young and others immediately following the feature.

Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in select movie theaters through Fathom's Digital Broadcast Network (DBN).
