Vision Films Sets VOD Release for Faith Based Feature ‘For Prophet’

LOS ANGELES, July 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Vision Films has announced the Transactional VOD release date of the light-hearted and poignant faith-based film For Prophet, across the US and Canada for July 26, 2024 and a day and date release on Sky Store in the UK. Vision Films acquired the movie through a deal with sales agency Dept. H. Directed, written, and produced by Mark Stewart Iverson, the film was also produced by Enrico Natale and executive produced by Allen Iverson. This is a contemporary and witty look at the age-old struggle of finding one’s faith and values by choosing whether or not to listen and follow the proverbial angels and devils that sit on one’s shoulders. The movie was shot on location in Elgin and Wheaton, IL, suburbs of Chicago not far from the filmmaker’s hometown. For Prophet opened in select theatres across the country in June including in multiple cities in TN, IL, AZ, CA, and SC.

Synopsis: A struggling entrepreneur battles a literal demon every day in the form of an ever-present hallucination. Enter the Archangel Raphael, who reveals him to be chosen as a part-time prophet, tasking him to save his crumbling and corrupt hometown. His marriage, his business, and his sanity will be pushed to the limit on this spiritual quest to let go and find faith.

Lise Romanoff, CEO and Managing Director of Vision Films says, “We all may have an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other. For Prophet is a delightful and fun comedy that reminds us that we can make the right choices and find faith regardless of everyday challenges and struggles.”

Filmmaker Mark Stewart Iverson shares, “God put For Prophet in my heart and instructed me to tell this story. I felt called to create a movie that would make people laugh, think and gain a new perspective on the struggle of this life; how faith can play a real part in overcoming doubt and fear. Whether you’re laughing or crying, hopefully both, I believe that the highest value in art is making people wonder about the eternal and really contemplate the human condition. I mean, everyone has an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other — that’s For Prophet.” Iverson continues, “This production was blessed beyond compare. Our team, in front of the camera and behind, really elevated this story to new heights. I love cinema that takes the audience on a journey, affecting their hearts and minds… We truly believe that’s what audiences can experience when they watch our film.”

The film stars Ben Marten (AMC’s 61st Street), Valentina Garcia (Lessons In Chemistry, Beef, Saved By The Bell), Enrico Natale (The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain), T’Keyah Crystal Keymáh (That’s So Raven, James Hong’s new Keepers of The 5 Kingdoms), Eddie Jemison (Ocean’s 11), and the late Bert Belasco (BET’s Let’s Stay Together) in his final performance.
