Christian Movie Connect Episode 77 - Yochanan Marcellino
Yochanan Marcellino is the Founder, President and CEO of City of Peace Media and City of Peace Films, both ‘sister companies’ with the purpose of providing a framework where music, films and video with redeeming value can be developed, produced and distributed worldwide, bringing a message of hope, love and encouragement to this generation. Over the course of his accomplished career in the music industry for nearly 40 years, Yochanan has worked with many successful artists. His transition to film began when he worked with his father, legendary music producer, Jerry Marcellino, during the big years of Motown Records. His new film, “The Identical” is scheduled for theatrical release in the fall of 2013.
In this interview, Marcellino talks with CMC host, Cheryl Ariaz Wicker, about his new film, “The Identical” and how its message challenges individuals to pursue God’s call on their lives.
“The Identical” is the story of twin brothers raised in different families struggling to find their purpose and destiny. Spanning five decades from the 1930′s through the 1970′s, this film is about the restoration and the reconciliation of a family broken apart by culture, creed and tradition.
