This week on social media, former Sanctus Real lead singer and now solo artist Matt Hammitt announced the documentary on his son Bowen was released on July 14 to digital. Bowen’s Heart, which has been in production since 2019, follows Bowen Hammitt, who at nine years old, underwent his third open heart surgery due to being born with a hole in his heart (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome).
“Three years ago, we followed our dream of taking something that was broken in our lives and trading it in for redemption,” Matt shared, announcing the movie’s release. “In 2010, when our son, Bowen, was born with a life-threatening heart defect, his story was featured on network television and radio. Because of that, so many wonderful people reached out with prayers and support. We found so much hope in knowing we were not alone.”
Matt continued, “I’m so grateful to everyone who had a part in making it, and I’m hopeful that after watching it, you will know, no matter your struggles, that you are not alone.”
The documentary was directed by Lexi and Zach Read and produced by the film company Rhyme and Reason. Bowen’s Heart is now streaming on Apple TV, Google Play, Microsoft, Tubi, and Amazon.
