“Where Was God?,” an Oklahoma documentary film, has been extended through Thursday, June 5,  at the Warren Theatre in Moore.

The documentary opened at the Warren on May 16. It sold out most of that opening weekend, the film’s producers said.

The film explores the role of faith and hope in overcoming life’s storms through the eyes of survivors of the deadly tornadoes in Moore in May 2013 and in Joplin, Mo., in 2011.

In a news release, the Rev. Steven Earp, the film’s executive produer and lead pastor of Elevate Church, said response to the documentary has been “extraordinary.

“We are grateful for the community support and hopeful the film will bring continued healing for those in our community and our state,” Earp said.

The documentary, directed, produced, edited and filmed in Oklahoma, follows the stories of survivors, parents, children, first responders and volunteers who talk about their experiences at the time of the tornadoes and the events that changed their lives forever.

The film is a nonprofit project funded by Elevate Church, and profits from the documentary will go toward continued disaster relief and mission work in Moore.

“We’re really happy with the response so far and thankful for partners like Straight Line Shelters,” Chris Forbes, “Where Was God?” producer, said in the news release. “We’re close to taking the film even further with screenings in Tulsa.  Anyone outside of our area can request a screening on our website. We’ve heard from supporters in Canada and Australia, as well as across the U.S.”

“Where Was God?” is a Behold Motion Pictures film in association with Elevate Faith Productions. The film was also produced by Brian Cates and directed by Travis Palmer.
