Capturing the on-stage energy and off-stage hearts of the Australia-based band Hillsong UNITED, HILLSONG – LET HOPE RISE is a new motion-picture genre: the theatrical worship experience. The film explores Hillsong’s humble beginnings and astonishing rise to prominence as an international church whose songs are sung every Sunday by more than 50 million people worldwide.


The film is directed by Michael John Warren and produced by Jonathan Bock, Matt Weaver, Ben Field, and Phil Cooke.
