'For Greater Glory' makes it to theaters in Latin America

.- After successful runs at the box office in Mexico and the U.S., the film “For Greater Glory,” which shows the religious persecution in Mexico in the 1920s, will arrive in theaters in Latin America.

Claudia Nemer Rodriguez of Dos Corazones Films, said the movie will be shown in the countries of Central America and in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, Bolivia and possibly later in Brazil.

Directed by Dean Wright, “For Greater Glory” recounts the story of the Cristero War in Mexico against the persecution carried out by President Plutarco Elias Calles in the 1920s. Nemer said the film had outstanding success in Mexico and the United States.

“In the U.S. we released 'For Greater Glory' almost five weeks ago on nearly 800 screens,” she told CNA in a July 10 interview.

“It is still on 100. The reception has been awesome, especially from the Hispanic and Catholic public.”

Nemer said that although most moviegoers “don’t usually choose to see a religious film,” the production company “wanted to make movies that are based on the most profound values of the human being and to do so in a way that is entertaining and high-quality, and to get people to see these kinds of messages in theaters.”

In terms of both cinematography and film score, the film “has a lot in order to compete with the big international releases.”

Nemer said these kinds of movies should be supported because they are not only “high-quality, they also have a message about human values. In addition to being entertained, people take away a message for the families and friends, which is what the world needs so much right now.”
