Vancouver, BC, May.1, 2013 — MV Studios and Airace Productions are pleased to announce, after 7 months of production the short film “Letter to a Priest”. Motivated by the Year of Faith and the Catholics Come Home campaign, director Clayton Richard Long set out to create a film that would attract souls to Christ. “The film is only 12 mins in length, with a short running time it can be a challenge to create an engaging, thought provoking film, the key to this was keeping our visuals fresh and our action moving at a constant pace.”
“The ‘door of faith’ (Acts14: 27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church.”—Pope Benedict XVI, Apostolic Letter Porta Fidei for the Induction of the Year of Faith.
Letter to a Priest is a short film inspired by “Lettre à un Religieux”, a book by French philosopher Simone Weil.
The film centers around “Jenny” a university student who, in refusing to be baptized, takes Simone Weil as the model for her life, she comes into conflict with her former boyfriend when she finds out that he, a formerly lapsed Catholic, is now planning to get married in the Catholic Church with his new fiancée, an Evangelical now converting to Catholicism.
