Actor Bruce Marchiano, star of Pure Flix's "The Encounter" series, passionately believes in the importance of an entertainment space where people can access safe and uplifting TV shows and movies — a positive venue where parents don't have to worry about what their kids are watching.
And Marchiano strongly believes Pure Flix is this essential space for Christian and family-friendly content that transforms, enriches and entertains hearts and minds.
The actor recalled how he, his wife and children were watching TV together one day when he suddenly felt embarrassed and uncomfortable by what they were seeing.
"I was sitting in front of the TV with my family and ... just based on the commercials alone, I was so struck by the direction of where this is all going, by the depravity, by the celebration of debauchery," Marchiano said. "I'm sitting there with my son and my daughter and my wife and I'm embarrassed — and I'm reaching for the remote to change the channel."

The next morning Marchiano reflected on what had unfolded and told his wife that he wanted to sit down with Pure Flix co-founder David A.R. White to discuss the essential work Pure Flix is doing — work you can support today by becoming a lifetime member.
A Pure Flix Lifetime Membership grants you and your family not only lifetime access, but also an important voice in creating great entertainment that changes lives, inspires hearts, and lifts the spirits of viewers like you. These are values Marchiano believes are essential in our current era.
"Pure Flix is that one place where someone can go and not be afraid to turn on the TV, not be afraid of what their children are going to see, not be afraid of agendas, not be afraid of other people's unrighteous ambitions being thrust upon them," he passionately proclaimed.
He went on to say that he believes God is giving an important opportunity — and responsibility — to Pure Flix.
"It's as if the Lord is handing the ball to Pure Flix and saying, 'You be that place. Your country, the world needs a place they can come to where they can breathe, where they can relax and not be afraid to have their peace interrupted by debauchery,'" Marchiano added. "I think Pure Flix is remarkably important."
