Please join us for the first Bay Area presentation of the film, Monseñor, the Last Journey of Oscar Romero, in recognition of the 30th anniversary of the death of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador.  This is the first film about Romero that goes beyond the classic genre of a filmed biography, exploring and probing the contemporary significance and legacy of his life and tragic death.  It is also the first film about Romero that places the Latin American campesiños at the center of the story. 

Monseñor, the Last Journey of Oscar Romero was produced by Latin/North American Church Concerns (LANACC), with the following creative team: writer/director Ana Carrigan, associate producer Eugene Palumbo, production manager Emanuele Pasquale, editor Juliet Weber, and project coordinator/theologian Rev. Robert Pelton, CSC.

Following the screening, Rev. Robet Pelton, CSC, will offer a short commentary and facilitate an open discussion of the film.  Fr. Pelton served as the project coordinator and consulting theologian for the documentary, and currently serves as Professor of Theology at University of Notre Dame's Kellogg Institute for International Concerns. He is the author of several books, including: Archbishop Romero (University of Scranton Press, 2006) and Monsignor Romero: A Bishop of the Third Millenium (ed., University of Notre Dame Press, 2004).

This event is made possible by a Bannan Grant from the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education, and is co-sponsored by the Justice and the Arts Initiative, Center for Performing Arts, Religious Studies Department, Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries, Latin American Studies Program, Campus Ministry, Ethnic Studies, Office for Multicultural Learning, and the Law School.
