LOURDES film still

This acclaimed new documentary offers an immersive, behind-the-scenes look at the stunningly beautiful French mountain village that went from sleepy town to sacred wonder after a 14-year-old peasant girl in 1858 claimed to have seen the Virgin Mary in a remote grotto. Today Lourdes is second only to Paris in the number of annual visitors (6 million). Hopeful and faithful individuals from all over—including many that are sick or desperate—make pilgrimages there in search of a miracle. “Deeply moving.” –Hollywood Reporter. (NOTE: This film should not be confused with Jessica Hausner’s 2009 masterpiece of the same title.) Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 92 min.
