The mass evangelical effort of the G-rated film will target churches and homes throughout Albany, Greene and Schenectady counties, from Gallupville to Cairo. The local distribution comes from a national organization in California, the Jesus Video Project America, a group established in 1992 with the goal of distributing the Warner Bros. film to every home in America.
