The view of faith in the seventh art

“The cinema serves to overcome distance and acquires that dignity particular to culture which is a specific dimension of the existence and being of man. It creates among the persons within each community a complex of bonds, determining the interpersonal and social character of human existence" - Saint John Paul II
The shows of the seventh art will also be activities that you can enjoy during the Youth Festival. Short films are also voices and images of the Gospel proclamation.
