Documentary commemorates 60th anniversary of Communion and Liberation

2014-11-01

It's not easy to summarize 60 years of life, experiences and meetings in 84 minutes.

"How can this be explained? I can't explain it. But I know that I have found something beautiful that has changed my life. And that is why I'm here.”

The documentary "La strada bella” (The beautiful path) tries to explain that life-changing event. Its a collection of stories that details the 60 years of life of the Communion and Liberation Catholic movement. 

ROBERTO FONTOLAN
Director, "La strada bella”
"In 2014, after 60 years since the start of this path, and almost 10 years after the death of our founder Luigi Giussani, I asked myself how I would tell a friend what it means to be a part of Communion and Liberation and belong to this movement. I wanted to explain why one has the need to live this experience.”

New York, Uganda and Brazil are just some of the places where the documentary unfolds. More than 600 testimonies were collected from 43 countries where Communion and Liberation is present. Many recall how they knew the founder of the movement. 

"When I met Fr. Giussani, this man who doesn't know me, he takes me as someone so special I wished that at least one of these women could meet that gaze.”

This Ugandan nurse's work with women infected with AIDS is just one of the many touching witnesses collected. 

ROBERTO FONTOLAN
Author, "La strada bella”
"It's not just an experience of charity, of help, of solidarity. It's much deeper. It's an experience of the Christian gaze upon the destiny of mankind.”

Julián Carrón, president of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation, as well several scholars and representatives from other religions are featured. "La strada bella” goes around the world to tell the story of those who lived an essential Christianity, just like a priest from Milan named Luigi Giussani did 60 years ago.
