LOS ANGELES - May 15, 2018 - Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi's AMBI Media Group will be celebrating the May 15 release of their heart-warming family film Beyond The Sun by rewarding a family of four the opportunity of a lifetime - a trip to the Vatican, and front row tickets to an audience with His Holiness Pope Francis. This will be made possible through a special sweepstakes contest that has been set up by AMBI. The film, which received The Pope's participation and blessing, will donate all profits to Los Hogares de Cristo and El Almendro. These charities, close to Pope Francis' heart, are located in his home-country of Argentina and provide aid to at-risk children and young adults.

Contestants can vie for the opportunity to win by visiting the website:  http://www.freetriptorome.com.  

The winner of the giveaway will receive the following:

  •  Airfare and five nights of hotel accommodations for four in Rome
  • Front row tickets to an audience with the Pope for four (4)
  • VIP tour of the Vatican museum, including the Sistine Chapel
  •  Private tour of the Vatican, Vatican Gardens and Swiss Guard Barracks

Said Andrea Iervolino, "It's an honor to be able to offer a family a trip to the Vatican, in the presence of His Holiness Pope Francis, who has been so supportive of this film. The Vatican is a special place that is dear to me, and it will be rewarding to see a family enjoy this experience as I have from my early years." 

Written and directed by Graciela Rodriguez Gilio, Beyond The Sun stars child actors Aiden Cumming-Teicher, Cory Gruter-Andrew, Emma Duke, Kyle Breitkopf, and SebastiÎŹn Alexander Chou, in a modern day tale of hope, faith and courage based on stories from the Bible. The film chronicles the adventures of four young friends in search of God. The uplifting story is intended to spiritually engage, and encourage audiences of all ages to transmit Jesus words, to understand them and integrate them to live a better life, make good choices and help others.

AMBI co-founders Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi produced the film with the religious advise of Monsignor Eduardo Garcia, Bishop of San Justo and General Assistent of FIAC. Co-producers are Graciela Rodriguez and Gabriel Leybu. The movie was financed by AMBI in association with Raven Capital Management and Paradox studios.

The Vatican is home to St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican Museums, which together, houses some of the greatest works of art including The Pieta, Raphael's Transfiguration, Leonardo Da Vinci's St. Jerome In The Wilderness, and a painting of The Last Judgement by Michelangelo.  The Sistine Chapel is famous throughout the world as the location where The College of Cardinals from The Roman Catholic Church, meet when a new Pope has to be elected.

A special premiere in support of Beyond The Sun was held at the Vatican this past September.  Written and directed by Graciela Rodriguez Gilio, the film is the first time a Pope has ever participated and appeared in a movie.  Filmmakers were asked to create cinema that would appeal to children and families, and bring a message of hope, joy, and God's love to all audiences.  

Distributed by AMBI Distribution, Beyond The Sun will be available for purchase across multiple platforms including iTunes, Amazon, and TUGG on May 15th.
