Vatican II History in Film

From Vatican Radio:

The Second Vatican Council as you’ve never seen it before: that’s what the Pontifical Council for Social Communications is offering through a new documentary film being released to mark the 50th anniversary of the Council on October 11th this year.

We were trying to give the opportunity to many people, especially the young generations who know nothing about the Council, to show a lot of material. Consider that in the Filmoteca Vaticana we have around 200 hours of filming of Vatican II and we thought it was good to offer such an opportunity to people to know what happened. . . .
You will see that the beginning of the film is historical background. . . . to see in 1959, when John XXIII announced the Council, what was the historical situation of the world – and so you can imagine what was the impact. . . .and I think this is important to have a historical and theological overview of the situation. . . .

You can read the rest here, and we’ll try to blog a link when it’s available.
