Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Maya Zinshtein‘s latest feature-length documentary, ‘Til Kingdom Come, has been acquired by London-based film distributor MetFilm Sales ahead of its premiere at the Tel Aviv International Documentary Festival.

Produced by Ventureland and Passion Pictures in coproduction with Piraya Film, ‘Til Kingdom Come explores the controversial relationship between evangelical Christians in the U.S. and the State of Israel.

Til Kingdom Come, which hosts its world premiere at this year’s Docaviv on Sept. 6, will spotlight a group of pastors in an impoverished Kentucky coal mining town, as well as their Evangelical congregants, who donate in droves to the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, due to a belief that “the Jews are crucial to Jesus’s return.”

The film will also look to expose the inner workings of the Trump and Netanyahu administrations – from the moving of the American Embassy in Jerusalem and the annexation plan of the West Bank – where, the film posits, religious and political motivations intersect and influence foreign policy.

Israeli broadcaster KAN IPBC and Germany’s NDR also serve as coproducers for the film.

Til Kingdom Come is produced by John Battsek (One Day in SeptemberSearching For Sugar Man) Abraham Troen and Zinshtein. Torstein Grude is coproducer. Maxyne Franklin executive produces.

The film is supported by the Sundance Institute, Doc Society, Bertha Foundation, New Israeli Fund for Cinema and Television, IDA Enterprise Documentary Fund and the Jewish Film Institute.
