‘Divine Influencer’ Entitled Social Media Star Learns True Joy In Pure Flix Film

One woman, who has amassed quite the following on social media, learns about joy and what it means to actually be an influencer and a leader in the latest film from Pure Flix.

Social media is not going anywhere. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and sites like them are here to stay. Those popular websites and apps do have an impact on society today. 

Some have even turned posting photos, memes and statuses on those sites into full-time jobs. Given their large follower and friend count, those people are often called “influencers.” 

In “Divine Influencer,” a new upcoming film from Pure Flix, one young woman who considers herself an “influencer” learns the hard way that Twitter, Instagram and TikTok aren’t real life. As the first look at the film, posted on YouTube shows, the film’s main character, Olivia, has to find a real job. Her parents are no longer going to support her financially. 

She will now have to try to find and influence a boss to give her a job and a paycheck. Lara Silva, who plays Olivia, says her character has been given an opportunity to learn and grow beyond her phone or computer screen.

“When she loses everything, she quickly realizes what is actually important in life,” Lara says. 

Social media, while it can be fun and exciting, often distracts and pits people against one another, battling over likes, retweets and followers. 

Lara later sums up the film's message in the short clip. 

“The message is to bring people to know Jesus and know that they are enough without feeling they need to be influenced by someone else,” Lara said. 

According to the video’s description, “Divine Influencer,” a Pure Flix original film, is scheduled to debut sometime in August 2023.

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
