Movie aims to give teens purpose


NASHVILLE — “We hope to start a movement among teens called 10:31 with an inspirational dramatic movie about girls cross country entitled REMEMBER THE GOAL”, said the film’s writer-producer-director Dave Christiano.11917481_873265272709121_7767409651529690665_n

“I look around and most teenagers are driven by the ungodly movies and music of the day.  They are plugged into the liberal media and listening to that wrong voice.  Their focus needs to change”.

“10:31” is based on 1 Corinthians 10:31 which states, “whatever you do, do all to the glory of God”.

“That one verse alone takes your eyes off self and puts it on the Lord” said Christiano.  “That one verse is life-changing.”

We have a crucial scene in our movie where this is all explained and it’s the turning point for our plot.  It can be the turning point for any teen and youth group as well.

REMEMBER THE GOAL is the first ever movie about a girls cross country team set to release in theaters on August 26, 2016.

It will be the 16th film from the Christiano Brothers, producers of Time Changer, A Matter of Faith, and The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry.   Two of their films have played in over 300 theaters.  They are hoping to increase that number for REMEMBER THE GOAL to as many as 600.

REMEMBER THE GOAL follows the story of a new Coach, just out of college, who takes over the girls cross country program at a private Christian school and attempts to lead them to a state title.

“The Coach has great wisdom for her young age and she imparts this to the girls covering many situations and issues in the story” says Christiano.

The main issues presented in this movie apply to all athletes and all sports! It shares insight on four different life lessons for teens and two for parenting. The movie also presents a principle for coaches that could change the way they run their teams.  It also gives teens something Christiano feels they desperately need:  a purpose.

Christiano is a former runner in high school and college, plus has coached two high school cross country teams.  “I did the cross country scenes correctly” said the filmmaker.  “I did not add any fantasy or foolery to my running scenes”.
