Faith, Media & Culture

Here’s this week’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith and culture:

Some faith-themed films worth keeping an eye on this month.

Fathom Events, Chelsea Road Productions and Tricord Media present Ice Dragon: Legend of the Blue Daisies in movie theaters nationwide on Saturday, March 24 at 12:55  and Monday, March 26 at 6:30 PM (all local times).

Based on a short story by Canadian director and producer Bruce Stacey (God Rocks!, Journey to Christmas), the film will premiere in U.S. cinemas for a two-day-only event. This is the first of a planned trilogy that will follow the adventures of Melody, a gifted young dreamer, and her feisty friend Leif, as they work together to save their village from a menacing dragon.  

“The original story sat in my drawer for more than 20 years until I was encouraged by friends at Cartoon Conrad Productions (Kulipari-Netflix Original Series) to dust it off and adapt it for the screen,” Director and Producer Bruce Stacey says. “I am thrilled this family adventure is making it to the big screen for audiences nationwide to enjoy.”

Synopsis: Melody, a gifted young dreamer, and her feisty friend Leif must set aside their differences and use the power of magical Blue Daisies and an ancient Song to save their world from an evil Ice Dragon. When the blue flowers that once bloomed all around her village began to disappear, Melody and her eccentric grandfather recognize this as a sign of great danger… but no one believes them! Racing against time, Melody must convince Leif and the other villagers before it’s too late.

Starring the voice talents of Rheal Rees (Melody), Justin Debé (Leif) and Bill Bray (Nicholai), “Ice Dragon: Legend of the Blue Daisies gend of the Blue Daisies features original songs and engaging characters that highlight this inspiring animated adventure for the whole family.
