Matthew Penner (Disciple Nations) sat down with Jordan Hatfield (writer, director and editor of Metamorphosis) to talk about the film. Jordan discusses the difficulties of spending 2 years making this film as well as explains the heart and vision behind it.
Metamorphosis is a documentary-style film which recounts the true story of Bill Troester and the powerful life-transformation he experienced through the gospel. Bill Troester’s childhood was characterized by pain, disappointment and abuse. This drove him into a life of violence, crime and drug addiction. In Bill’s darkest moments he discovered that there is no sin too great or pit too deep for Jesus to reach down and save.

God turns our ideas of wisdom and strength upside down. Human wisdom sends us on an empty pursuit of attaining honor, wealth and security through our own strength and self-exertion. This pursuit is ultimately fueled by pride and selfishness. Jesus teaches us that the one who truly wants to be “first” must be willing to become “second.” The one who wants to attain true glory and honor must be willing to accept the humble attitude of being a servant to all, and like a child, embrace full reliance on God rather than on their own strength and abilities. The on who humbles themself in this way will be exalted by God.
