Provo, UT—September 15, 2023—Updated February 15, 2024

Angel Studios, the studio behind the summer blockbuster SOUND OF FREEDOM, is announcing their next theatrical release, the feature-length film AFTER DEATH.  AFTER DEATH will premiere in theaters nationwide on October 27, 2023.

“The Angel Guild found AFTER DEATH to be a  compelling cinematic experience,” said Jared Geesey, CDO of Angel Studios. “Life’s biggest question deserves the biggest screen.”

“I’ve found that there are a lot of people in this world who are hurting and searching,” said Stephen Gray, Director of AFTER DEATH. “I have a deep personal connection to the stories we’ve included in our film, which is why I’ve dedicated the past 6+ years of my life exploring these questions so that it might become a beacon of hope for others. For skeptics, this film opens the door to begin to ask haunting questions.”

AFTER DEATH is a captivating and thought-provoking exploration into the enigmatic question that has fascinated humanity for centuries: “What happens when we die?”  Through personal accounts, philosophical discussions, and scientific research, the film takes viewers on a profound journey of discovery. 

AFTER DEATH features New York Times bestselling authors, doctors, scientists, and survivors, including Don Piper (90 Minutes in Heaven), Dr. Mary Neal (To Heaven and Back), John Burke (Imagine Heaven), Dr. Jeffrey Long (Evidence for the Afterlife), and Dr. Raymond Moody (Life After Life). 

AFTER DEATH, a Sypher Studios Production, was written and directed by Stephen Gray (DISCOVERING HEAVEN), co-directed by Chris Radtke (AMONG THIEVES), and produced by Jens Jacob (I’M NOT CRAZY I’M SICK, WAR UNFOLDING) and Jason Pamer (NICK: THE NICK VUJICIC STORY, THE HEART OF MAN).
