THE I HEART REVOLUTION is a documentary film about an Australian praise and worship rock band called Hillsong United and the social problems they seek to raise awareness of.

Theme

There are occasional verbal references to sexual abuse and child prostitution, including to children being born with HIV Aids because their mothers were abused, references to child prostitutes being offered for sale, girls being raped and forced into prostitution, children being raped and mutilated and a man remembering

childhood sexual abuse. These references are factual, soberly presented and lack sensationalism or supporting visuals.

There is also brief reality footage depicting a soldier being shot and falling dead, brief sight of dead bodies following a massacre in Rwanda, sight of a man with healed scars on his face, a man recalling how his mother was sexually assaulted and left to die in a ditch where she was eaten by a dog and brief sight of a dead child. The images in question are brief and the descriptions lack any graphic detail.

A man also talks briefly about self-harming as a cry for help, but this is undetailed and negatively presented.

There are brief mild sex and drugs references are mild, including a woman stating that she worked in a ghetto counselling drug addicts and prostitutes.

Infrequent mild bad language includes use of the phrase "screw it up" and a single use of discriminatory

language when a man is shown holding a 'God Hates Fags' banner, although the context does not condone his behaviour.
