GIVE YOUR LIFE
With “For Greater Glory” we wanted to film a story that hadn´t been told: humans who risked everything to defend their faith, testimonies of heroes and mexican Saints, ordinary people who remained faithful to God’s unconditional love and gave their lives to defend our church and our faith as Jesus Christ gave his life for us. Thanks to the Cristeros we can continue to have the Sacraments in Mexico.

What price would you pay for freedom?
It is 1927, several months into a raging civil war in Mexico over religious freedom and the right of the Catholic Church to exist. General Gorostieta (Andy Garcia), a retired military mastermind is recruited by the rebels to take command of the ragtag resistance army.
We watch as Gorostieta changes from a man of little faith into a fervent supporter of religious freedom and an inspiring and self-sacrificing leader. His decision to fight for the liberty of others becomes his own path to personal transformation and within a few years the disparate rebels become impassioned warriors, 50,000 strong, battling to save the heart of the nation.
