“Outcasts” came to Christendom College this month, with the creators of the acclaimed film traveling to campus to screen the groundbreaking documentary about the day-to-day lives of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (CFR).
The film’s executive producer, Joseph Campo, personally brought the film to Christendom, and was joined by a CFR friar for both the screening and a Q&A session after the film.
Students, faculty, and staff attended the screening, and were moved by the stark glimpse into the daily lives of the friars and the people they encounter. The film follows the friars across the globe, with footage shot in the prisons of Central America, the dark city streets and the most treacherous neighborhoods of London, New York and Ireland.
“It was really refreshing to see something so real,” said junior Trey Dusseault. “To be able to really see the grit of the world that we live in and just how these friars combat these evils was important. The movie portrayed this so well, and I’m happy I was given the opportunity to share in this experience.”
