Pine Creek Entertainment, in association with Focus on the Family, Kindred Image and Fathom Events, will present a special event for three nights only in select cinemas nationwide on March 3, 4 and 5, 2015, with the debut of The Drop Box. This feature-length documentary will include an exclusive panel discussion.
The Drop Box tells the story of one man’s efforts to protect and care for newborn babies who might have otherwise been abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea. Pastor Lee Jong-Rak built a “baby box” – a safe harbor to welcome and care for these babies. So far, more than 500 babies – many of whom have disabilities – have been helped. A portion of the film’s proceeds will go to support Pastor Lee’s ministry.
“The Drop Box is ultimately a story of hope,” said Focus on the Family president Jim Daly. “Even in the midst of a heart-wrenching situation, we see the heart of a father’s love in Pastor Lee. Not everyone is called to do what he’s doing or adopting a child themselves, but all Christians are called to care for orphans. Watching this documentary changes a person – it draws you to care even more deeply for the most vulnerable among us.”
The Dove Foundation awarded “The Drop Box” five Doves, the highest rating available, in its review of the documentary.
