Christian Film Festival

SAN ANTIONIO (AP) — A documentary about a South Korean pastor who rescues disabled babies has won the $101,000 grand prize at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.

"The Drop Box," by 22-year-old filmmaker Brian Ivie, tells the story of Pastor Lee Jong-rak, whose small church in Seoul has accepted dozens of unwanted children. The documentary describes how Lee built a drop box in the wall of his home with a note that says, "If you can't take care of your disabled babies, don't throw them away or leave them on the street. Bring them here."

Accepting the prize Saturday evening, Ivie promised to "steward this investment," saying he would rather tell "the plainest truth with $100,000 than the most sophisticated technological lie with $10 million or $100
