"Pure Comedy Gold"Dream Scenario starring Nicolas Cage opens Friday December 1!

Closes November 2
There's a fine line between faith and madness

In 2018 a shocking event made headlines around the world: a young American missionary, John Chau, had been killed while attempting to contact one of the world’s most isolated peoples on remote North Sentinel Island. From acclaimed directors Amanda McBaine and Jess Moss (Boys State), National Geographic Documentary Films’ The Mission uncovers the gripping story beyond the headlines. Through exclusive interviews, and with unprecedented access to Chau’s secret plans, personal diaries, and video archives, The Mission reveals the mythology of exploration that inspired him, the evangelical community that supported his quest, and his own father’s heartbreak as Chau’s youthful first for adventure became a fatal obsession.

Triumphant…thought-provoking…fascinating. Chau’s story is about much more than religion and mission trips. The real lesson to be learned is the need for adults to realize that life is more than a storybook with ourselves as the hero.


It’s a troubling, smart, must-see documentary..
