Cabrini to Host U.S. Premiere of Mother Cabrini Documentary

Posted on 11/1/2017 2:00:00 PM

100 years after her death, Mother Cabrini documentary premieres with a special screening.

RADNOR, Pa. (Nov. 1, 2017)—On Dec. 5, at 7pm, Cabrini University will host the U.S. premiere of Frances Xavier Cabrini: The People’s Saint at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

The film explores the culture and spirituality that shaped Mother Cabrini, the Patron Saint of Immigrants and Hospital Administrators.

Honoring the centenary of her death, the special premiere includes a pre- and post-screening conversation with director Lucia Mauro and producer Joe Orlandino.

The topical documentary reintroduces audiences to the First American Saint and addresses her relevance today for refugees and immigrants. Filmed in the U.S, and Italy, the documentary captures Mother Cabrini’s tenacity and dedication to serve those in need.

The film includes enlightening interviews with author-scholar Achille Mascheroni, Sister Bridget Zanin, Father Richard Fragomeni, artist Meo Carbone, architect Christopher Payne, Sister Maria Regina Canale, Youth Ministers from the Archdiocese of Chicago, and more. The film also includes a special appearance by Il Grande Coro di Roma, conducted by Fabrizio Adriano Neri, which was filmed live in Rome performing an original hymn composed by Enzo De Rosa exclusively for the documentary.
