HOLY SILENCE, a documentary, takes a fresh look at a topic that has sparked controversy for decades. During the years leading up to WWII, what was the Vatican's reaction to the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany? And, after the war began how did the pope respond to the horrors of the Holocaust? This film focuses on American officials who were working behind the scenes to influence the Vatican's actions during that dark period in modern history. For the 7:00 p.m. showing there will be a commentary following the film from Father Buddy Noel, Ecumenical and Interreligious Officer of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
