Audiences love and get new movie "Spirit of Love"
What audiences are saying about authentic indie basketball film Spirit of Love and how it compares to Hoosiers.
Los Angeles-CA It’s just a matter of time before others catch on to this wonderful, authentic, pure and inspirational feel good film “Spirit of Love”. The film has a big message which we can all learn from while being entertained.
“This movie provides insights into the prejudices that separate people and the interactions that bring us together. Basketball legend Mike Glen has stepped up for years to make a difference in the lives of kids with lessons about character, integrity, hard work and simple human kindness. This movie helps open doors to acceptance of others based on the content of character and not the choices of communication. Both hearing and deaf alike can enjoy the deeper messages.” Bob Ayres, author of Deaf Diaspora: The Third Wave of Deaf Ministry. Bob Ayres, DTQ National Director, YFC Deaf Teen Quest, Youth for Christ/USA.
“Love the message. Love the theme. This movie must be seen by many students in schools throughout this great earth" Jeff Conley, FCA, Fellowship Christian Athletes.
“Spirit of Love was a very inspirational movie. I learned some things to help me in my coaching. I’m definitely going to use some of the things I saw last night in the film within our program. I hope this movie becomes a major movie. I see more inspiration and life lessons in this movie than in the film “Hoosiers.”

NQ MEDIA, Kevin POWERS- “A truly inspirational film for the whole family that will teach you about teamwork, friendship, and the Love of The Game.”
“A film that touches the heart! Spirit of Love is one of those rare films that goes beyond the art of film making and touches the heart. You can't miss the message that each of us, while appearing different, are really quite the same - we ALL need to be loved, and to show love to one another! One of the things I loved about the film was how what most view as a physical limitation was viewed as something normal - as opposed to over sensationalizing the topic. The metaphor of sports is great because, as one coach says in the film, "...anyone can play basketball..."
"It’s a great honor to have our film compared to Hoosiers which I feel is one of the best sports films ever, and specifically basketball. We are thrilled to receive such great feedback from audiences who have either screened the film privately or at film festivals. Grassroots can seem slow for indie filmmakers, but we know we have a great message for audiences and like most filmmakers we want to share it with others," said director Darla Rae.
While Producers are looking for the right distribution home for Spirit of Love, the Mike Glenn story, the film continues to gain audience support. The film was just recently announced as the Opening night film for the Inaugural International Film Festival to be held at the Gwinnett Cultural Arts Center in Georgia on July 26th at 8pm. The Gwinnett International Film Festival is presented by BrandBank. Location: Performing Arts Center. A portion of the ticket sales will benefit the Mike Glenn basketball camps for the deaf and hard of hearing.
