The new feature film SLAVES AND KINGS produced by the Claretians and Stellarum Films, directed by Pablo Moreno (Luz de Soledad, Poveda) and starring Antonio Reyes (The Ministry of Time, Gran Hotel), Alba Recondo , and Carlos Canas (Drug Squad), is set to release in movie theaters nationwide via Fathom Events and Bosco Films on August 22 (English) and August 23 (Spanish).
"SLAVES AND KINGS presents a Catholic hero, a special friend of slaves and kings, who was unwavering despite persecution and whose story is largely unknown. It's important for us to look to those who exemplify heroic virtue and show us the way of faith amid trials. Who among us does not suffer for the faith? Saint Anthony Mary Claret can help us and inspire us to persevere."
"Saint Anthony Mary Claret is a man for our times," said Pablo Moreno, director of SLAVES AND KINGS.
Watch the official trailer below:
"Claret gave everything he had to defend the truth - he is an apostle, an intellectual, a missionary and a saint. There are elements of Claret's spirituality that are very relevant today: his fight against slavery, against racism; his desire to educate people, to enlighten them in the midst of circumstances such as those of the 19th century -which coincidently seems to me to have parallels with our times and circumstances today."
SLAVES & KINGS coming to theaters is a powerful opportunity to come face to face with a hero of Catholicism, a saint whose life of faith teaches Christians how to follow Christ in and out of season. Parishes and groups are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance and use the film and its message in ministry settings.
Tickets for SLAVES & KINGS can be purchased at Fathom Events or participating theater box offices. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
