The killing of five missionaries—Nate Saint, Jim Elliot, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, and Peter Fleming—in the Amazon jungle captured the attention of a nation and prompted Elisabeth Elliot to write the best-selling Through Gates of Splendor. But what would remain untold for half a century is the incredible response to these deaths. Beyond the Gates of Splendor, a stirring documentary by director Jim Hanon and producer Mart Green, brings this story to life. The film traces friendships forming on a Midwest college campus, young families venturing out to the South American mission field, and the heartbreak of a bloody beach in Ecuador. Five lives taken by the Waodani (a.k.a. Aucas), the most violent tribe on earth. The tragedy compels several of the women to risk their lives, and those of their children, to live alongside their husbands’ killers. Through the example of these brave women, a brutal, warring culture is transformed. Murderers become healers. And what was once known as the cradle of darkness becomes a community of light and hope.
