Here is a project that needs some prayer support. Barbara Nicolosi posts on a new Fatima movie possibly in the works. A previous attempt fell through and right now they are looking for investors to bring a commercial and mainstream version of the events at Fatima.
Hollywood did do a version of the events at Fatima in 1952 in a movie called “The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima.” This is a enjoyable movie that doesn’t depart too far from the events and is quite pious, though in a older Disney sort of way. A serious retelling of events that relies on all of the subsequent information provided by Sister Lucia in her various books on Fatima would be quite welcome. There is more documentation from a wide variety of sources about Fatima then any other apparition in Church history. When you include that with the number of witnesses (including skeptics) at Fatima that day and in the area surrounding it that have given testimonies it is quite sad that Fatima is really not that well known outside Catholic circles. I know I had never heard of it before entering the Church. I guess it is a sign of the times that Roswell gets much more attention and Fatima gets hardly any – even efforts to debunk it. Barbara writes:
…Honestly, I am starting to feel like getting together a movie package and financing makes the miracle of the sun look almost banal.
If this does come to fruition I certainly hope Barbara is involved along with other capable artists so that we get a serious artistic attempt at the retelling and not the mediocre fare of for example Walden Media.
