?We need to put down the censors? scissors and pick up the cameras? because ?the power of the cinema surpasses that of the schools, the pulpits, and the press and always has greater effects?: these are the words of Blessed James Alberione, who initiated his cinematographic activity on March 18, 1938.
From that day onward, the Daughters of St. Paul have traveled unmarked and unexplored roads, joining the world of film to that of the Gospel. Continuing in this committment, the Paulines of Langley have organized a series of encounters and workshops to present the figure of Jesus in the films of all time.
Father Lloyd Baugh sj, of the Pontifical Gregorian Unitversity of Rome and a great expert in this field, guided the encounters held in the Dioceses of Northampton and Newcastle and two workshops held at the Universities of Durham e Newcastle. Interest was great: Jesus and the cinema speak always to the hearts of all people.
