This summer, for one weekend only, we’re unlocking three of our fan-favorite films. We’re inviting our current subscribers and new visitors to watch some of our most inspiring films for FREE. 

Every now and then we run across a story so moving, so emotional, so epically inspirational that we can’t keep it inside our usual eight- or 10-minute format. For these special stories we create unique documentaries designed to bring the entirety of these memorable stories to our audience. Typically, we release these films in places like Netflix, Stars or even limited movie theatre venues, but this weekend only, they are FREE to stream right here! Just join the community (which is also free) and you’ll get access to all of these great stories.

Here’s what you are missing if you haven’t seen these documentaries: 

Loud Krazy Love

The Remarkable True Story of KoRn’s Brian Head Welch and the Little Girl that Saved His Life

I Am Second first featured the Brian “Head” Welch story when the organization launched in 2008. There we captured the story of how a world-famous rockstar came to Jesus. But none of us knew at the time just how messy, tough and, ultimately, inspiring the next stage of his journey in faith would be. 

The sound Brian Welch helped pioneer with KoRn in the early ‘90s provided identity to a generation of misfits and made him a global rock star. But this worishipping guitarist never overcame his own inner demons. Alcohol and a devastating crystal meth habit led him to walk out on a $23M record deal in 2005. He had recently become a father and the birth of his daughter made him realize he needed to change his life.

This film dives deep into the story of a father-daughter relationship that travels through teenage depression, the quest for identity, and the hope of a father willing to do anything for the one he loves. 

The End of Malice

Featuring the Gene “No Malice” Thornton Story

Originally known as “Malicious” and later “Malice,” Gene Thornton helped create the coke-rap genre of music as part of the hip hop group Clipse. His lyrics celebrated drug dealing, promiscuity and violence. But the fame and privilege of hip-hop stardom never could fill the void in his life. Satisfaction and peace forever evaded him. But when he finally found the answer to a fulfilled life he put to death “Malice” and “No Malice” was born. 

The film draws upon the observations of his brother Terrance Thornton (a.k.a. Pusha T), and close friend, Pharrell Williams, to deliver a passionate and riveting story relevant for anyone striving for more out of life.

Many Are the Wonders

The Ethan Hallmark Story

Cancer. Community. And a day in the life of a special boy named Ethan.

Ethan Hallmark was just another kid baseball player. Little did he know he would become a reluctant community icon after courageously fighting stage 4 neuroblastoma, a rare type of childhood cancer. 

I Am Second started out to produce a White Chair Film with Ethan in our usual format. However, as the story unfolded, the project grew to include his family, friends and hometown. Ethan’s courage in the face of cancer is bigger than one boy. It is about a family and a community intertwined to journey through the darkness – together.

These films are available to all members of the free-to-join I Am Second community for this weekend ONLY! So if you are looking for some inspiring content to binge watch this weekend, we’ve got you covered.
