Romero films now online

Published date:
5 February 2019

We are delighted to announce three new films available to watch on the Archbishop Romero Trust website.

This is the first time the films are available to watch online. With the first Feast Day of St Oscar Romero coming next month, it is an opportune time to remind ourselves about the life of the newly canonised saint, as well as be re-inspired by his legacy. 

Two of the films are documentaries about Romero's life. The Last Journey of Oscar Romero is a documentary about the life of St Oscar Romero by Ana Carrigan and Juliet Weber from 2010. 

El Cielo Abierto (The Open Sky) is a documentary by Everado Gonzalez from 2011.

Also available is Roses in December. On 2 December 1980, Jean Donovan along with three American religious sisters were brutally murdered by members of El Salvador's security forces. This "sensitive, marvellously constructed film" chronicles Jean's life, from her affluent childhood in Connecticut, to her decision to volunteer with the Maryknolls in El Salvador, to her tragic death. 

All three films can be found on our website by clicking HERE.
