St Genesius Film Club: Of Gods and Men

St Genesius Film Club, Dublin

"Of Gods and Men"

7pm Tuesday 28th June,

Knights of Colombanus,
Ely Place, Dublin 2.

Film on third Tuesday of each month, come along and bring a friend.

Tomorrow night, the St Genesius Film Society in Dublin will be showing "Of Gods and Men". This is a must see film, that has won many awards. Eight French Christian monks live in harmony with their Muslim brothers in a monastery perched in the mountains of North Africa in the 1990s. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps though the region. The army offers them protection, but the monks refuse. Should they leave? This film is loosely based on the life of the Cistercian monks of Tibhirine in Algeria, from 1993 until their kidnapping in 1996. It explores the last few months in the life of this small community of Christian monks in a "Muslim land."

Save us, Lord, whilst we watch!
Keep us, Lord, whilst we sleep!
And we shall watch with Christ
And we shall rest in peace…
