WASHINGTON, D.C., June 14, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “Nine Days that Changed the World,” hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich, has been selected as a Finalist for Best Documentary at the second annual Mirabile Dictu International Catholic Film Festival in Vatican City, placing as one of the top three finalists in the category. This documentary is produced by Citizens United Productions in association with Gingrich Productions and Peace River Company.
“Nine Days that Changed the World,” explores Pope John Paul II’s historic nine-day pilgrimage to Poland in June of 1979, which created a revolution of conscience that transformed Poland and reshaped the spiritual and political landscape of the 20th Century. The award-winning documentary examines the momentous events that moved the Polish people to renew their hearts, reclaim their courage, and free themselves from the shackles of Communism.
“We are honored that Nine Days that Changed the World has been selected as a finalist at this year’s Mirabile Dictu International Catholic Film Festival,” said Callista Gingrich, President of Gingrich Productions. “Through his devotion to Jesus Christ and the cross, Blessed John Paul II changed not only Poland, but the world. His legacy of freedom through faith is one we continue to be inspired by and are proud to share.”
The Mirabile Dictu International Catholic Film Festival is an independent festival, founded by Liana Marabini, under the high patronage of the Pontifical Council for Culture. Mirabile Dictu is a coming-together of actors, directors, and film makers, gathered by their concern for the history and the values of the Catholic Church.
