Vatican Congress looks at the role of the family through film

Card. Ennio Antonelli

President, Pontifical Council for the Family

“This Congress has been very interesting, focusing on movies, family, work and celebration, which is the theme of the meeting in Milan: How the media, especially in film, can help further this issue.”

Alessio Boni

Actor and director

“This camera not only records but makes an x-ray of your feelings. TV is important because it enters houses, to many different rooms, because there are houses with up to five televisions. The communication of ethical messages and morality in the film is essential. It?s an agent of culture and whoever isn?t aware of this in 2012, is not in the world.”

During the conference these actors, talked about what they think about ;family and how they discovered what kind of parents, children and spouses they want to be.

Card. Ennio Antonelli

President, Pontifical Council for the Family

“We work hard to have a good profession, a career, but it is much more important to have a good relationship. And that is a daily chore.”

The John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family was founded in 1981 to reflect and investigate the achievements of ;human sciences that deal with marriage and family. And that is precisely, something that will especially be looked at in Milan during the International World Meeting of Families.
