Life for Life: Maximilian Kolbe

Auschwitz, 1941. One of the prisoners, Jan, escapes from the German concentration camp while working at a gravel pit. Thanks to the help of good-hearted people he finds shelter. There Jan hears tragic news about ten random inmates sentenced to death by starvation by the Nazis as a punishment for his escape. One among the convicts is Fr. Maximillian Kolbe, a Franciscan priest who volunteered to die in place of one of the inmates. Now Jan is not just fleeing the Nazis, but also from his guilt for his involvement in Kolbe’s death. He goes to visit Niepokalanów, a very large Franciscan monastery where Fr. Kolbe had been the founder and superior. There Jan wants to learn what were the motives behind his decision to die for another prisoner, a complete stranger. Though free from Auschwitz, Jan will continue to be confronted by the life and death of Maximilian Kolbe wherever he goes. In addition to Jan—torn between wanting to forget and a fascination with Kolbe—another key character emerges, Brother Anselm. He is a devout young Franciscan priest who quietly but strongly witnesses to Kolbe’s heroic faith and love, and then rejoices at the Beatification of Kolbe by Pope Paul VI. Later Kolbe will be canonized by his fellow countryman, Pope John Paul II, who proclaimed Kolbe as the “patron saint of the difficult 20th century”. Starring Edward Zentara and Christoph Waltz, and directed by Krzysztof Zanussi. In Polish with English and Spanish subtitles. SPECIAL FEATURES Includes a 16-page Collector’s Booklet and Study Guide with color photos and text by Catholic film critic Steven Greydanus

“Life for Life reflects thoughtfully on what the cult of the saints means for us, on the nature of hagiography itself. Perhaps more than any film I can think of, it explores how the saints can and should inspire us, if we are open to them, or how we may stumble at them if we are not. For this reason alone, it’s among the most essential saint films I’ve seen.” —Steven Greydanus, Film Critic, National Catholic Register

NEW FALL FILMS Saint Rita of Cascia The True Story

A

compelling docu-drama that tells the whole story of the amazing life of St. Rita of Cascia, the very popular saint who lived in Italy in the 14th century. Famous as the patron of hopeless situations, St. Rita dealt with many very difficult, and tragic, events in her life. Through it all she developed a profound faith in God that was the source of her great strength, and why she is such a popular saint for all those dealing with difficult events in their own lives. Her story combines high drama, great love, deep betrayal, profound forgiveness and strong faith, about this brave woman who married her knight, helped him overcome his dark past and convert to faith, happily bore him two children, and later endures immense pain as she loses everything in her life. She finds peace and new hope through the generosity of a nearby convent of sisters, and with their help she develops a deep union with Christ that greatly inspires all who are near her.

Saint Francis of Assisi His Life and Miracles

T

his new docu-drama on the life and miracles of St. Francis is based on the official writings of Brother Thomas Celano, a close companion and friar with St. Francis who spent many years with the saint. Brother Thomas called Francis an “alter Christos” who was like “a holy mirror of the sanctity of the Lord, and an image of His perfection.” Beautifully filmed on location in Assisi and other Italian towns where Francis made an impact, this film tells the story of his whole life. We see the wealthy young Francis who dreamt of being a great knight becoming transformed by a mystical experience of the Lord who asked Francis to “rebuild my Church”, leaving all his possessions and uniting himself with his “Lady Poverty”, serving the poor and outcast. Francis becomes a “troubadour of the Lord” and a “jester of God” who attracts great numbers of men to join his new monastic order, and help renew the Church and spread the Gospel. The film uses many famous works of mediaeval art by Giotto and other Italian artists to illustrate the life of Francis. Various historians, professors, priests and friars offer insightful commentary about the life and times of this greatly loved saint. SAFA-M . . . 60 min, $14.95

Saint Celestine The Pope Who Quit

T

his is the riveting and mysterious story of Pope St. Celestine V, the pope who retired from the papacy after a very short reign. At the close of the tumultuous Middle Ages, this future monk and pope seemed destined from birth to save the world. His birth name was Peter Morrone, who became a hermit, and the founder of a religious order. The hidden designs of divine providence would, practically overnight, transform this humble servant of God into the most powerful man in the Catholic Church. Half a year later, he would be the only pope in history til then to abdicate the chair of St. Peter. What caused him to make that astonishing decision and the events that followed were shrouded in mystery for centuries. This docu-drama investigates the secrecy of this dramatic time in history and reveals a story that involves deadly dealings, apocalyptic maneuverings, and papal intrigue. Shot on location in Italy with beautiful scenery of the Italian countryside, ancient churches and castles, it makes use of classic mediaeval art to illustrate the story of Celestine. Historians, professors and monks provide insightful commentary about the life and times of this controversial and enigmatic saint. SACE-M . . . 60 min, $14.95

NEW FALL FILMS Defeating the Devil Exorcists Tell Their Story

N

ever has the devil, demonic possession and exorcism been so widely discussed as it is today. And yet, few satisfactory explanations are proffered. This powerful film describes the origin of the evil spirit, the devil’s descent, and his interruption in the world from the temptation of Adam and Eve to the present day. The devil’s powers, his tactics, objectives and limitations, are discussed by several renowned experts in the field of demonic phenomena, including the most famous of all, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the Official Exorcist of the Diocese of Rome and author of perhaps the definitive scholarly work on demonology. We discover how the devil works, by using temptation, curses, infestations, hexes… and possession. We learn what his preferred victims are like and how they fall in his traps. We also explore the world of spiritualism, Tarot cards, astrology, Satanism and other occult practices. The Dark Side... that which is vanquished by the light of faith in Christ who is more powerful than all evil. Includes English and Spanish language options. DTD-M . . . 55 min., $19.95

The film details how their “recipe for success” follows the 6th century Rule of Saint Benedict and how this Rule can serve as a model for schools in cities nationwide. This DVD is for Home Use Only. “A powerful success story. The film’s chief strength is in the engaging personalities of the Benedictine monks, who are clearly not suffering from burnout.” – The Hollywood Reporter “The Rule is a terrific film about an inspiring school in the heart of Newark. It shows how an urban high school can succeed against the odds. A MUST SEE movie!” —Steve Adubato, Ph.D., Emmy Award Winning Anchor, WNET & NJTV (PBS)

The Ten Commandments / Ben Hur DVD set

The numbers speak volumes: 100,000 costumes, 8,000 extras, 300 sets and a staggering budget in its day the largest in movie history. Ben-Hur’s creators made it the best, the greatest Biblical-era epic ever. Charlton Heston brings a muscular, physical and moral presence to his award-winning role of Judah Ben-Hur. Cecil B. DeMille’s 1956 remake of The Ten Commandments is sheer pageantry and spectacle which few motion pictures can claim to equal.

NEW FALL FILMS Breeders A Subclass of Women?

Surrogacy is fast becoming one of the major issues of the 21st century. What is the impact on the women who serve as surrogates and on the children who are born from surrogacy? In what ways might money complicate things? What about altruistic surrogacy done for a family member or close friend? Is surrogacy a beautiful, loving act or does it simply degrade pregnancy to a service and a baby to a product? Can we find a middle ground? Should we even look for one? From The Center for Bioethics and Culture, producers of the award-winning Eggsploitation, Breeders: A Subclass of Women? explores this important issue, talking with surrogates, physicians, psychologists, and activists across the political and ideological spectrum.

Finding Saint Anthony A Story of Loss and Light

Over the centuries, Saint Anthony of Padua has been acclaimed as a great example of holiness through countless works of art, sculpture and books. Many Catholics, and even non-Catholics, think of Saint Anthony as the first one to turn to when something is lost. Yet amid this widespread veneration and devotion, we may miss the story of a man who began his life like all of us. This film reveals the journey of Fernando Martins de Bulhões, a 13th century Christian whom we know today as Saint Anthony. Here, we discover a young man who was often “lost” and searching for direction in his life. As we encounter his humanity, we find someone we can relate to, someone we could have easily called a friend. Shot on historic locations in Portugal and Italy, Finding St. Anthony is a documentary film that focuses on the experiences of Fernando (Anthony) in his search for the life God is calling him to lead. His story gives us insight and inspiration for our own spiritual journey. FSA-M . . . 50 min, $19.95
