Friday Night at the Movies... (Critics Wanted + Door Prize!)

"If you could only see the beauty that can come from ashes..."

That is one of my favorite lines from an incredible short film featuring Nick Vujicic & Eduardo Verástegui titled "The Butterfly Circus."

This film is absolutely beautiful. Grab a tissue (actually, better the whole box) and press play...

Now it's your turn to be the film critic... Let's hear your answers to 2 quick Questions in the comments:

  1. Without using the typical rating systems (Thumbs Up/Down), how would you rate this film?
  2. Is there one person in your life who can't see "the beauty in the ashes"? If so, what is one thing you'll do about it this week?

Here's the Door Prize
One random commenter will WIN a DVD of another one of Eduardo's films called "Bella." It's a powerful and highly acclaimed feature-length film. You can view the "Bella" trailer here.

Finally, Nick Vujicic is part of an exciting ministry and you can watch more about his life story here:

I would rate this a 10 out of 5!
I actually wish that it was a full length feature film.

Yes I will be encouraging my daughter to see herself as a child of the King!

Thanks for the encouragement and the post.

Hi! Got here through Julie Majors. Just wanted to comment that I watched "The Butterfly Circus" about a month or so ago, and I LOVED it!! I happen to BE one of those people who can't see the beauty in the ashes. I tend to focus on the YUCK of who I am instead of focusing on how God sees me (covered and washed clean in the blood of Christ). This film really touched me. And thanks for posting the CBN interview as well. What an amazing story!!
