The Printing

When Christian principles become socially unacceptable and society moves to repress them, what will Christians do? How important are the Christian faith and family values they believe in? Witness the Soviet Union—before glasnost. Fear of the KGB pervades society, and Christian faith is stifled wherever it is discovered. Most believers cling to a hollow shell of Christianity tolerated in “registered” churches. However, some believers opt to remain “unregistered,” worshipping God openly and accepting the consequences. A brave few dare to print Bibles—right under the noses of the KGB. This story is about them. While The Printing  is a fictional story, Unusual Films has based the characters and events on real people and documented events that occurred during the Communist Era in the U.S.S.R.

“I came here from Russia.  I have watched  “The Printing” over and over, and it has been a great blessing to me.  It really captures the way things were for Christians over there.  I want to show it to my children, so they will understand.”
