|Lewis University to premiere film on Archbishop Oscar Romero
Published: November 4, 2011.
Lewis University will be the site for the Chicago area premiere the film “Monseñor” at 6 p.m. on Nov. 30 in the Academic/Science Building Room 158 located on the University’s main campus in Romeoville. Admission to this event is free.
“Monseñor” is the first film about Archbishop Oscar Romero that goes beyond the classic genre of a filmed biography, to explore and probe the contemporary significance and legacy of his life and tragic death. The film on Romero placed the Latin American campesinos, farm workers, at the center of the story.
The presentation will include an introduction and question/answer session with Father Robert Pelton, CSC. Pelton is the project coordinator and theologian for the film as well as other project of Latin American/North American Church Concerns of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame.
The film was produced by LANAAC. The screening is sponsored by the Lewis University Multicultural Student Services office and Lewis University’s Committee for Latin American/Latina/o Academic and Student Events.
