*Ignacio: Story of the First Jesuit*

A great story needs to be told.

After Pope Francis ascended Peter's chair, there came renewed interest 
in the life of his spiritual father, St. Ignatius of Loyola.  Yet while 
a basic internet search shows 3,540,000 million entries on St. Ignatius, 
the same search for a film on his life yields a mere 217,000 
entries.Even a search on Amazon shows only two DVD movies based on his life.

In Jesuit-run schools it is not much different.A survey made by Jesuit 
Communications Foundation (JesCom), a media organization in the 
Philippines that produces audiovisual materials for education and 
evangelization, revealed that in Ateneo de Manila University -- the 
leading Jesuit-run school in the country -- the only film about the 
saint available for students to watch is an old black and white film 
made in the late 1940's.El Capitan de Loyola was produced completely in 
Spanish with only English subtitles.

"How sad and how ironic we felt, because the young people now are very 
creative and visual," recounts Fr. Emmanuel Alfonso, JesCom Executive 

Due to the dearth of popular media on the saint, JesCom decided to 
retell St. Ignatius' story for a modern audience, especially the youth.

"If you want to talk to [the youth], you must engage them in media," Fr. 
Alfonso explains.

The great story of the saint will be shown through */Ignacio: The First 
Jesuit/*, a full-length feature film to be produced and directed by 
Filipinos while being shot completely in Spain. Even the cast will be 
composed of Spanish actors. Read more at
