Pastor Sun Hui East, originally of South Korea, moved from Denver to San Antonio in 2013, bringing along her church and her burgeoning film company, Strong Foundation Films. Now, she and her son, Josiah Warren, have delivered the company’s eighth film, Run, a thriller about Christians taking a stand against human trafficking. As East and Warren traveled around the country talking about the film’s impact, Christian Cinema caught up with the duo.
East explained how God spoke to her about the need to make movies to share her faith because young people simply were not coming to church. “We need to do better as independent Christian films to compete with Hollywood to help people hear stories about forgiveness and love,” East shared.
3/14/17 Christian Cinema - Review
Strong Foundation Films wants to make films that speak to issues in society today...Warren proves to be a capable leading man and director of the film, showing the anguish Levi feels and the powerful determination never to give up. In a Christian film niche that is filling quickly, it's necessary that we care about his character and Natalie's as well. In fact, Run may do the best job of any of these films of showing the nefarious way that human traffickers use a variety of methods (Natalie's outright kidnapping is the least likely of them) to gain 'product' for their trade. That's even scarier because it's so subtle and nonchalant.

To bring a greater awareness to people. When we realized what was going on, we wanted to create a greater awareness of this modern day slavery.
