Forthcoming film on Cristeros

A stirring trailer for a forthcoming film about the the Cristeros Rebellion which took place in Mexico between 1926 and 1929 in response to increasing persecution of the Church by the government of Plutarco Elias Calles.

The film is directed by Dean Wright who also directed "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and the cast includes Peter O'Toole as an elderly priest. There is an official website for Cristiada but there is not much information there as yet.

I am looking forward to seeing this, but it is another film that probably won't get much enthusiastic promotion in England.
