The NOS association and local officials in Granada, Spain, have organized a film festival featuring movies that are openly offensive to Catholics.
The fourth edition of the festival “Understanding Each Other,” has as its theme this year “Homosexuality and Christianity.” The festival begins this week and will continue through December 12. It includes full-length features as well as short films.
Organizers say the purpose of the event is to validate the “double condition” of Christians who are homosexual. The films featured aim to focus on this “social reality” “in order to fight against the homophobia that still exists in society.”
Among the films to be featured include “Priest,” the story of a young homosexual priest stationed in a small Catholic town; “Normal,” in which a happily-married wife discovers her husband’s homosexuality; and “Sebastine,” a film that presents a homosexual version of the life of Christian martyr St. Sebastian.
