The Human Experience

Official website here.

Went to see it yesterday in Leicester Sq and it is a very good film/documentary.

It drip feeds Catholicism as it goes as the characters end up places with Catholic names, with lots of holy pictures on the wall, a delightful little girl brought to the children's homes from the street by nuns etc and would perhaps be very appealing to the person about to go travelling on a gap year, looking for experiences.

The interviews with homelss people in NY, children in a children's home in Peru and lepers in Ghana were every affecting. Where else but this screening would you be watching people shake hands with lepers on the screen whilst sitting a few people away from some Franciscan Friars of the Renewal?

Thank you very much for this tip. I have just returned from a screening. It is a truly wonderful film- a first blast of the trumpet against the culture of death!
