I just didn’t expect the major driving force and financier behind it to be someone who has never been to a movie in their life. Check out this fascinating story in Christianity Today about Mart Green, who is now founder and CEO of Mardel.

The movie, Beyond the Gates re-tells the story of these five men who were speared and hacked to death by the Auca Indians in Ecudador, after some attempts at befriending them.

Probably the most famous of them was Jim Elliot, who was married then, to the now present Christian author and speaker, Elisabeth Elliot.

Their story is an amazing story, and I’m interested at what this film will be like.
