The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), which was featured heavily in Spotlight, 2016’s Academy Award winner for Best Picture is a global organisation working on its mission statement, “Our most powerful tool is the light of truth. Through our actions, we bring healing, prevention and justice”
The makers of Hail Mary plan on distributing printable fact sheets that will promote the film, while educating the public about the issue. Additionally, Team Hail Mary will ask its online followers to show support by putting their movie stubs in church collection baskets to send a loud message, without making much noise.
Goa-based Savio Rodrigues owned Arihan Pictures in collaboration with South Indian filmmaker R. Joseph Kennedy have started pre-production work on their ambitious project ‘Hail Mary’.
‘Hail Mary’ is scheduled to have a global release in 2019.
‘Hail Mary’ is coming at a time when the Catholic Church globally is facing a sexual abuse crisis.
India too has over the last couple of months seen a #ChurchToo crisis of sexual abuse with accusations levelled on priests and Bishops by women including religious sisters of the Catholic Church.
Upcoming firm that may be of interest to the survivor community. https://t.co/qcmNGEmLh2
