Christendom College will host a screening of the acclaimed documentary, “Outcasts,” on Thursday, January 18, in St. Kilian’s Café. An immersive look at the life and witness of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in some of the most dangerous locations in the world, the film is for mature audiences only.
“Outcasts” is the latest film from Grassroots Films, who previously released the acclaimed films “The Human Experience” and “Child 31.” “Outcasts” is their most impressive work yet, and won “Best Justice Film” at the New York City Justice Film Festival last year.
The film follows Franciscan Friars across the globe, as the film crew traveled to the prisons of Central America, walked the dark city streets and most treacherous neighborhoods of London, New York and Ireland to spotlight the lives of the modern-day outcasts, according to the news release.
The subject matter can be harsh, but the message of the film is immensely uplifting, as it gives a real glimpse into the work the Friars embark upon a daily basis to help the poorest in our society.
“Outcasts” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. in St. Kilian’s Café, with a Q & A session afterwards with the film’s executive producer Joseph Campo, and with a CFR friar.
