A new faith-based movie, “My Brothers’ Crossing,” is based on a true story about a black pastor who unintentionally has a head-on collision with his car into a motorcycle killing a white couple shortly after the Ferguson riots in August 2014.
The movie, now playing in select theaters, tells the story of the tragic death of motorcyclists Bobby and Pam Clark. The plot unfolds from the perspective of Bobby’s brother, J.T. Clark, whose on-screen character is played by award-winning actor Daniel Roebuck. Clark eventually forgives C.J. Martin, the black man who killed his brother. Martin’s role is played by veteran actor James Black.
“The film was initially set to premiere in theaters last fall, but we are very thankful it was delayed and is hitting theaters now when this country so desperately needs healing across all racial lines.” director Ricky Borba said. “I really believe God saved the film to premier for such a time as this.”
The movie was produced by Tony and Edna White and executive produced by the Rev. Samuel Rodriquez, who co-produced the film “Breakthrough” in 2019. Rodriguez said the story of forgiveness is timely in a way that cannot be mere coincidence.
“Especially at a time when we are confronted with the unresolved problem of racism in America, our nation needs to remember that forgiveness can eclipse our racial divisions and heal even our deepest wounds.” he said, “I am honored to be part of such a powerful and compelling film, one that shares the hope of transformation for individuals and entire communities through the power of Jesus Christ.”
Movieguide gives My Brothers’ Crossing three out of four stars, saying the movie is an inspiring story about the power of forgiveness, loving your neighbor and the importance of God.
