God’s Country: A Trip to America's Biggest Christian Music Festival



I Saw the Light is a documentary film about a trip to Creation, one of the largest Christian music festivals in the country. The film follows a youth group on their adventure from the outskirts of Baltimore to the middle of Pennsylvania—or as folks in the area like to call it, God’s Country. The 35-minute piece is produced by VICE’s Chloe Campion and hosted by Noisey’s editor-in-chief, Eric Sundermann.

Through conversations with Grammy winning pop duo for KING & COUNTRY and rapper Andy Mineo—along with speakers from the 50,000+ attended festival—the documentary takes a thoughtful look at the world of Christian music, belief, growing up, and Jesus Christ. To quote a character in the film, we’re “not going to call this the Christian Woodstock, but… it’s the Christian Woodstock.”

This documentary is dedicated to John Jeremiah Sullivan, whose essay ​”Upon This Rock” ​for ​GQ​ ​​inspired the film.​​
