On Saturday the 29th of September, the film Marcel Lefebvre, Archbishop in stormy times will be shown in public for the first time. This film retraces the life of the founder of the Society of St. Pius X based on the unpublished testimonials of those who knew him, including numerous documents from the archives. This screening will be in Paris, in the presence of Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, at the Grand Rex at exactly 4 p.m.

The March-April 2012 issue of Nouvelles de Chrétienté took its readers behind the scenes of the filming of this exceptional documentary. Jacques-Régis du Cray, author of the script inspired by the biography of Abp. Marcel Lefebvre written by Bp. Bernard Tissier de Mallerais (published in French by Clovis, in English by Angelus Press), described the purpose of the film: “To make known to the multitude, and not just to the faithful of the Society of St. Pius X, a personage through whom we comprehend the crisis in the Church. As we do not wish to limit our audience to French-speaking people only, the film will be available in English, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Polish.” After the public showing on September 29 in Paris, the film “will be sold in DVD format and will be distributed by several vendors, including Clovis.”
