Fátima Film night in Dungloe, Co.Donegal
The presentation of double award winning film titled “The Call to Fatima” will take place in St Cronas’ Church, Dungloe, Co. Donegal on Friday, 9th July at 7.30 pm. This presentation includes film clips, producers’ talk and lovely music by a special guest soprano Louise Irvine.
“The Call to Fatima” film is based on Sister Lucia’s writings, the last visionary of the Fatima apparitions. The film’s producer had received several requests to have it shown in different parishes around Ireland, including St Mel’s Cathedral in Longford, St Eunan’s Cathedral in Letterkenny, St Joseph’s Church in Dublin, SMA in Cork City and many more, as well as abroad.
The film, which took seven years to complete, was produced by Dubliner, Thomas McCormack, and has already won awards at film festivals in Poland (“St Maximilian Kolbe” award) and Belarus (“Magnificat 2009” award) for education.
“The Call to Fatima” has two parts: the first part tells the story of apparitions, prophecies, secrets and talks about the lives and deaths of three little children- Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin Lucia dos Santos. The second part gives a viewer deeper inside in understanding the meaning of Fatima Message, which is as relevant today as was back in 1917.
Much of the second film was shot on location behind the Carmel monastery in Coimbra and many of the voice-overs including Sr. Lucia’s own singing voice, are from those who knew Sr Lucia personally, cousins, nephews, Carmelite nuns, her private doctor, close priests and friends. Altogether these people came to play a key part to bring this film to light.
