Man of God Opens in Australia & New Zealand on June 2, Canada June 3

NEW YORK – Man of God, the inspirational and award-winning story of Saint Nektarios — one of the most renowned Greek orthodox saints — continues to captivate audiences around the world. Following sold-out screenings across the United Stated in March of this year, the film is set to be released in Australia and New Zealand on June 2 and exclusively in 20-plus Cineplex theaters throughout Canada for one week only, beginning June 3.

The film, written, directed and produced by Yelena Popovich, depicts the life of St. Nektarios of Aegina, a priest of the common people, whose popularity provoked the jealousy of the clergy in Alexandria and led to his expulsion from Egypt. Nektarios was recognized as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church in 1961 and his feast day is November 9.

The film was shot in Greece, specifically in Athens, Lavrio, and Aegina where St. Nektarios established a monastery. Some scenes at the monastery were filmed inside the actual cell where the saint lived. Award-winning Greek actor Aris Servetalis, in a moving performance as St. Nektarios, leads an international cast including Mickey Rourke and Alexander Petrov. The music was composed by two-time French Cesar winner Zbigniew Preisner with special performance by Golden Globe winner Lisa Gerrard.

Man of God dominated the Greece/Cyprus box office for four straight weeks when it was released in August 2021.
