The Dundalk based Medugorje prayer group has arranged for the international film phenomenon 'Apparition Hill' - a documentary about Medugorje and its sacred history - to be screened in Dundalk.
The film follows the extraordinary experience of seven people who embark on a journey as strangers, and asks big questions about the meaning of life .
Dundalk man James Mc Crave from the local prayer group explained the background to the documentary.
“Last year an online video contest offered seven free trips to places of alleged miracles
“This included a village called Medugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina, where it was claimed to you could see apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1981.
“Millions have journeyed there and nearly everyone describes a sense of peace in the air. said James who has also visited the area several times.
“Film makers Cimela Kidonakis, along with director Sean Bloomfield , and co-producer Jessi Hannipel from Stella Mar films chose a diverse, unbiased group for the free trip and filmed their entire journey.
“The contestants included a young mother with stage 4 cancer , an atheist from England and an agnostic Chicago police officer, a man suffering from ALS , a heroin addict/felon, a man who lost his wife to cancer and a woman questioning her faith.”
James added that the film has even been rumoured for an Oscar nod in the best documentary category.
