New trailer for Cristeros film



A new trailer for the forthcoming film "For Greater Glory" which chronicles the Cristeros rebellion in Mexico (1926-1929) against the government's aggressive secularisation of the country.

The film is set to be released 6/1 which, in American, means the 1st of June. I'm looking forward to seeing this. I would be pleasantly surprised if it gets much showing in England but now we have the increasing availability of films on Blinkbox, Lovefilm and, as I understand, soon to be launched in the UK, Netflix.

Rorate Caeli comment on the trailer: "You have not seen this many Roman chasubles in a motion picture since the advent of the New Mass..." - and not a trivial point in my view.

See the post Cristeros for some footage of interviews with people who fought as Cristeros.
