Jon Erwin is 1/2 of the Erwin Brothers, a two-person team of Christian Filmmakers committed to telling profound and Christ-honoring stories in cinema. You may have seen one of their films: “Woodlawn,” “Mom’s Night Out,” “October Baby,” or their newest project “I Can Only Imagine.” In this interview, Jon discusses the story behind their most recent movie, his hopes for the future of Christian filmmaking, and the vital role Jesus plays in his life and work.

In 1973, a spiritual awakening captured the heart of nearly every player on the Woodlawn High School football team. Their dedication to love and unity, in a newly desegregated school filled with racism and hate, leads to the largest high school football game ever played in the torn city of Birmingham, Alabama, and the rise of superstar, Tony Nathan.
