Trailer for Cristiada

Here is a preview trailer for the movie Cristiada, shown at the World Youth Day film festival, about the violent persecution of the Church in Mexico. Coming to the United States soon (the film, if not the persecution).

From the Cristiada website--
A chronicle of the Cristeros War (1926-1929), which was touched off by a rebellion against the Mexican government's attempt to secularize the country. The film follows the stories of ordinary people from across the country who choose to stand up for their freedom. Caught up in a full-fledged civil war, they all must decide how far they are willing to go and what they're willing to risk.

Cinema Catechism at World Youth Day

Well, not Cinema Catechism specifically, but the idea of using film to spread and teach matters of the faith.
