STRANGE OCCURANCES KNOCK [DVD]

$13.00
Description
One dark evening in 1879 in the village of Knock, in County Mayo, fifteen local people collectively experienced a vision of the Virgin Mary. After two official inquiries, the village was declared a Marian Shrine. Over one million pilgrims annually visit Knock now, which has a population of just 2,000. This captivating documentary is from the same team behind the award-winning One Million Dubliners, which despite its rather morbid subject-matter managed to create a humorous and warm film, thanks in no small part to charm and poignant contributions of tour-guide Shane MacThomais. In Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village (the film takes its title from press coverage of the 1879 apparition) Fr Richard Gibbons is the main mover. A wily operator, he has been compared for his drive and endeavour to Monsignor Horan, the late begetter of it all. Blending his work as priest of Knock with his administrative duties at the basilica and shrine, there's also the small matter of fund-raising for a new basilica. Aoife Kelleher's documentary is sprinkled with a range of other vignettes of faith, heart and humour but the main focus is on the characters both local and pilgrim alike, rather than religion. There's a woman who is certain she was cured of Multiple Sclerosis at Knock. Validation has not been granted yet, due to some professional doubt about the diagnosis. While another woman in her mid-forties has been diagnosed with the same condition and has come to Knock hoping for help from Our Lady.
