ABOUT THE FILM
“Generational Sins” (2017)
Written by Dax Spanogle & Spencer T. Folmar
Log line: Two estranged brothers set out on a road trip to the home one doesn’t know and the other wants to forget.
Two estranged brothers are brought together by the death of their mother, whose dying wish it to see them return to their birthplace and reunite with their abusive, alcoholic father. The brothers set out on an emotional journey that leads them to their hometown, suffocating with the darkness of memories the younger brother can’t remember as the older wants nothing more than to forget…
As each reconnects to the town and its people, the brothers struggle to find the meaning of “home” – both for those who stay, and those who leave. Together they must confront their father – the memory and the man himself, and are ultimately forced to choose between a bitter existence or a life forgiveness.
“Generational Sins” explores themes of home, grace, and forgiveness, diving into the nature of how these concepts, experiences and ideals impact the very decisions we make, and thereupon, the ramifications they impose on the lives of ourselves as well as others.
“Generational Sins” a powerful and emotional drama about family history and the inevitable task of facing your past. This is not an easy topic for most people to discuss. Our closets are full of skeletons that have been there for decades… maybe even centuries. There has to be some impetus for change in the bloodline to create a shift from darkness to light. This film aims to illuminate this difficult process in a very real, gritty, winsome, and original way. In crafting and refining the story, I initially wanted this film to have heart and to speak objective truth.
Unfortunately, most films that characterize themselves this way do not portray a true to life setting. Our film speaks truth, in an excellently made product, in a real world scenario, with realistic characters and plot lines. This film is one of a kind, and we would love for you to experience this journey.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
Generational Sins, LLC is a film production company established for the purpose of bringing compelling stories about the human condition to a film going audience in a way that accurately reflects the mind and spirit of Jesus Christ and speaks truth to this present generation in a fresh and powerful way.
What makes our company unique among other Christian filmmakers is our commitment to portraying characters, both Christian and non-Christian alike, in all of their flawed humanity and brokenness. We accomplish this with realistic, real world scenarios and real life characters.
Hollywood has been the virtuoso of pathos for generations. These masters of dramatic cinema have produced some of the worlds greatest existential films dealing with human existence. Invariably, these Hollywood films have no solution to the human dilemma, or at best, attempt to offer either hopelessness, or the false hope that man can find redemption and salvation within himself and the individual personal choices made without the necessity of any objective form of truth.
At Generational Sins, LLC, our films will offer mankind hope that is timeless. It is the hope of redemption from death and despair made available thru the objective truth of Christ’s identity, death, and resurrection.
While we are in the “entertainment” business, our purpose goes beyond producing Christian entertainment for Christian people. That is not our calling. Our desire is to make hard hitting, thought provoking secular films with characters who are portrayed as real life, flawed people who can speak boldly of their faith without being judgmental or preachy.
If you share this vision with us we invite you to join our cause, support our efforts, like our Facebook page and share the latest news about our current feature length film project Generational Sins with your family and friends.
