Film director Blair Treu, kickboxing wife and mother Carolina Muñoz Marin, and Elder Benjamín de Hoyos of the Seventy were at a press conference in Mexico City promoting the release of the Spanish translation of Meet the Mormons, or Conozca a los Mormones, on February 19. David Archuleta, singer and songwriter of “Glorious,” featured in the film, was at the film’s premiere to sign autographs with Brother Treu and Sister Marin.
“We had an incredible time in Mexico,” Brother Archuleta said in an Instagram post. “I hope we go back soon because the people are so great, and I made friends very quickly.”
Meet the Mormons features the stories of six Church members, including Sister Marin from Costa Rica. The film is meant to break stereotypes about the Church and its members.
Revenue earned from the film in the United States will be donated to the Red Cross. In Mexico, the profits will be donated to the National System for Integral Family Development.
Conozca a los Mormones was released in 50 Cinemex theaters in 35 cities throughout Mexico on February 27. Mexico is the second country to nationally release Meet the Mormons.
