CYPRESS, Texas - July 17, 2018 - PRLog -- PrettyWork Creative announced today that their award-winning documentary, "What Mercy Looks Like" (2017) will screen Saturday, August 4, 2018, at 1 PM at the San Antonio Film Festival. The festival runs from August 1 to August 5 in San Antonio, TX.

The documentary that started out as a promotional video for Mercy Response—an organization formed to assist those impacted by natural disasters—quickly turned into something more. The couple followed teams of volunteers through debris-filled streets for six weeks post-Hurricane Harvey. Filmmakers, Lisa N. and Elgin Alexander documented the hard work and generosity of strangers who came from across the country to help Houstonians rebuild their lives.

Michael Lehmann, senior pastor of Trinity Vineyard Church praised the couple for their efforts. The Cypress, Texas church was the base camp for hundreds of volunteers and tons of food and equipment.

Lehmann had this to say about the couple on a recent Facebook post, "You came early in the morning and stayed till late in the day. You loaded up your equipment, showed up to film and plans would change. You navigated wretched conditions to capture the story. You spent countless hours editing and cutting the film. You never complained. You never expected anything in return. You never quit until the finished product was award-worthy. The documentary will live on in history, telling the story of the selfless volunteers who showed us what mercy looks like."

"What Mercy Looks Like" received a Gold Remi at the 51st WorldFest Houston International Independent Film Festival. The film and the award are the first for the PrettyWork filmmakers and business partners.
