(Los Angeles, CA) – Embark on an inspirational journey of faith in the spellbinding biblical epic starring Emmy® nominated actor John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings franchise, Shogun, Indiana Jones franchise) and Stephen Baldwin (God’s Club, Faith of Our Fathers), Peter – The Redemption, arriving on DVD and Digital HD August 2 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM). The moving faith-based film artfully retells the biblical narrative of Apostle Peter during the first Christian persecution. Also starring Steve Byers (“Smallville,” “The Man From High Castle”), the film was celebrated by The Dove Foundation and was awarded their “Faith Friendly Seal for Ages 12+.”
Directed by Leif Bristow (Joseph & Mary) and written by John Patus (Left Behind), Peter – The Redemption follows Peter (Rhys-Davies) as he is tormented by his denial of Christ. Having spent his life attempting to atone for his failures, Peter’s true devotion as a witness for the Lord is tested yet again as he faces certain death at the hand of the cruel Roman Emperor Nero (Baldwin). Will he falter again and let his weakness betray him? Or will he rise up triumphant in his final moment?
