THANK YOU AGAIN!
Canaan Land is about a consummate charismatic con man, "Brother Billy Gantry" (played by Richard Rossi), meeting "Sister Sara," a female faith healing evangelist. Over 1,000 actresses have tried for the lead before our casting associates chose Kinght Rider star Rebecca Holden to play the lead role. Sara's a true believer.
Brother Gantry’s focus on offerings and building a bigger ministry is the antithesis of Sister Sara's hunger for God.
The film is not an attack on religion. It is our intention in exposing the counterfeit to show the search for that which is pure, lovely, true. Defensive believers may say we shouldn't expose the counterfeit, but a counterfeit testifies that there is a truth sets us free.

The movie is a 21st Century story from Richard Rossi's novel "CANAAN LAND". Youll find this film is a needed expose and search for authentic faith. You'll see us dramatize how frauds deceive followers into believing pastors who claim to be prophets and miracle workers worthy of donations. Some abuse the most vulnerable by implying healing is tied to giving money.
There are 30,000 denominations yet too few do what Jesus said to do: feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick and fallen (Matthew 25), judge not lest
ye be judged (Matthew 7:1), and go into a closet to pray (Matthew 6:6).
As you view this film, you'll be left to ponder questions like: Who am I following? Am I following someone real? Are they walking the walk or just talking the talk? What is the difference between rigid religion & a healthy concept of God & the gospel?

We were Academy Award-considered for our first film on Aimee. We received a letter from Pope Francis about our movie on Clemente. The Clemente film was made through $15,000 raised online through crowdfunding by Eternal Grace, our 501c3 non profit organization. Here's the letter from the Pope:
