TBN’s musical documentary ‘THE JOURNEY’ follows Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli through historical pilgrimage route Via Francigena
The film will play in U.S. theaters for four nights only, between April 2-4 and on April 6
A new musical documentary features world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli and his wife, Veronica, as they travel on horseback through Italian terrain to complete parts of the major Via Francigena pilgrimage route.
The Via Francigena runs from the English cathedral city of Canterbury, through France and Switzerland, to Rome, where Christians worshiped at grand cathedrals and visited the burial sites of revered saints and apostles. From there, the route continues to Apulia, Italy, a point of departure to the Holy Land.
“THE JOURNEY: A Music Special from Andrea Bocelli” is a co-production of Trinity Broadcasting Network, Fathom Events and Impact Productions. It will play in U.S. theaters for four days only, between April 2-4 and on April 6.
“We are so excited to be bringing ‘THE JOURNEY’ to theaters across the country,” said TBN president Matt Crouch. “This was such a life-changing documentary to film and I hope it will reignite the faith and passion of audiences as we bring Via Francigena to their hometowns.”
The documentary combines world-class musical performances with intimate conversations across the awe-inspiring Italian countryside. It is an “exploration of the moments that define us, the songs that inspire us, and the relationships that connect us to what matters most,” states a press release announcing the film’s debut.
“THE JOURNEY” features a blessing by Pope Francis and musical performances by Michael W. Smith, 2CELLOS, Tori Kelly, Clara Barbier Serrano, Tauren Wells, TAYA, Matteo Bocelli, 40 Fingers and Katherine Jenkins.
“Andrea Bocelli is a masterful tenor and his voice, combined with the beautiful footage and music in ‘THE JOURNEY’ make for an incredible event,” said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “This documentary of Andrea’s faith-filled pilgrimage will be an incredible addition to theaters this Easter holiday.”
