Miami, Sept. 25, 2018 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) acclaimed Tower Theater will present the film screening of The Apparition, Friday, Sept. 28. The movie combines a mystery plot involving the Catholic church with the continent-hopping story of a traumatized war reporter seeking the truth at all costs.
Jacques is a journalist at a large regional newspaper in France. His reputation as an impartial investigator attracts the attention of the Vatican, who recruit him to lead a committee to explore the legitimacy of a saintly apparition in a small French village—a true canonical investigation.
Upon his arrival, he meets the young novitiate Anna, who claims to have personally witnessed an apparition of the Virgin Mary. She’s garnered an impressive following in the village but is torn between her faith and the many solicitations she receives. Confronted with opposing views from clergy members and skeptics, Jacques finds his belief system profoundly shaken as he works to uncover the hidden motivations and pressures at work.
A Music Box Films release, written and directed by Xavier Giannoli (Marguerite), The Apparition stars Vincent Lindon (The Measure of a Man), Galatea Bellugi (Keeper), Patrick d’Assumçao (Stranger by the Lake), and Anatole Taubman (Captain America: The First Avenger).
