Screenwriter Brian Godawa, who wrote To End All Wars, told WORLD the power of movies drove him into filmmaking. "I can remember going to movies in college and crying through them because I saw them as very powerful human expressions of worldviews," he said. "Too often, Hollywood movies express lies and ugliness with great detriment. And I would weep, just desiring that God would be glorified in big silver screen stories in the way that lies and falsehoods were too often glorified. So, some of my interest was just simply the desire to see God glorified in a powerful medium of beauty. . . . I want to create beauty that honors God and glorifies Him because when I do, I feel His pleasure. And that is enough for me."
