As you have undoubtedly wondered, this film shares the name of a well known-file sharing service, but that is nearly the end of any similarities - this box is in the business of saving babies.

Pastor Lee Jong-Rak built a “baby box”—a safe harbor to welcome and care for these babies at the front of his church. So far, more than 500 babies—many of whom have disabilities—have been helped. A portion of the film’s proceeds will go to support Pastor Lee’s ministry.

"The Drop Box" is the story of Pastor Lee's work and tells his story and the stories of the children he has helped to save.

A graduate of the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, director Brian Ivie and his film crew friends began shooting in 2011. For him the experience was personally transformative as well .“I became a Christian while making this movie," he explains. "When I started to make it, and just saw all these kids come through the drop box—it was like a flash from heaven. Just like these kids with disabilities had crooked bodies, I had a crooked soul. And God loves me still.” You can learn more about him here.

The film will be screened in Winnipeg on March 4th, 2015. You can find more information on where the film is playing here.
