The Grandfathers

The Grandfather’s is a documentary about Jesse Saint, son of Steve Saint and grandson of Nate Saint, the missionary who was killed in the jungles of Ecuador in the 1950s.

Jesse Saint never knew his famous grandfather and at times he didn’t want to be known as Jesse Saint, grandson of Nate Saint, the missionary who was killed.” Jesse’s family moved to Ecuador when he was in high school. He adopted as his grandfather’s, three of the men who killed his own grandfather.

The documentary is very well done. Excellent.  I highly recommend it if you are interested in learning more about the Saint family.

There was only a couple of things I didn’t particularly like about the film, 1) I thought the pictures at times moved a bit fast and also were small.  And 2) the film box says it has special features, (Director’s Video Journal, Behind the Scenes Video, Music Video, Trailers of EGM Films Related to This Story, etc) and it had none of those. I was also expecting a movie and this wasn’t. It was a great documentary and I would highly recommend it. I think it would be great for churches to use, small groups, etc.
