Feature films compete for the “Silver Fish” at the International Catholic Film Festival

2015-06-19

Three films have been nominated for the top prize at the International Catholic Film Festival. The Spanish film "Flow”, the Paraguayan feature "Felices los que lloran”, and American movie "Full of Grace” will compete at the festival also known as "Mirabile Dictu.”

Juan del Santo starred in "Flow.” His character is seeking success in theater, but the difficulties he experiences cause him to face hard questions about loneliness and spirituality.

JUAN DEL SANTO
"It is a story of dreams, of broken dreams, but there is hope to overcome those broken dreams and the frustration that they can bring.”

"Felices los que lloran” stars Harry Stanley. It's a story of a young man named Juan who doesn't know how to react to problems at home or how to beat his drug addiction.

HARRY STANLEY
"Like any young man, I also identified with Juan. Juan has many aspects but he has a little bit of all young people in him. Even some experiences that Juan had, I also went through, and other young people went through too. I loved doing the character of Juan.”

The final film under consideration is "Full of Grace,” a biblical drama that describes the life of Our Lady ten years after the Passion of Christ. It is an exciting reconstruction of the lives of early Christians.

Rome Reports has also received a nomination at the film festival. "The Secret of Teresa,” a film that helps understand Teresa of Lisieux, is being considered for Best Director

The Vatican will host the festival, starting on June 22nd. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on the 25th.

The contest started six years ago to give recognition to filmmakers who want to depict universal values and characters with hopeful stories.
