First feature film on St. Augustine will debut at showcase Catholic media event

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (August 20, 2012) - Ignatius Press announces the American premiere of RESTLESS HEART: The Confessions of Augustine on Aug. 29 during the 2012 Catholic Marketing Network (CMN) Trade Show, which will be held at the Arlington, Texas, Convention Center. The premiere will begin at 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 29. It will be held in the Champions Ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel, which is adjacent and connected to the Convention Center.

"We hope that many who watch this inspiring human drama will allow themselves to be found by the Truth and in return also find Love," Pope Benedict XVI said, after viewing this European production, the first feature film on the life of one of Christendom's most beloved saints.

RESTLESS HEART is based on St. Augustine's The Confessions; the film tells his amazing story in his own words! In conjunction with the American release of this important work, Ignatius Press has published a special edition of The Confessions as part of the Ignatius Critical Editions series, complete with commentary, essays, and footnotes by experts on Augustine.

"RESTLESS HEART is amazing," Ignatius Press President Mark Brumley said. "It is one of the most moving stories of conversion and reconciliation ever brought to the big screen, and Ignatius Press is honored to have a chance to premiere the film at the CMN show. We are thrilled to offer this film to America."

Ignatius Press has developed a unique hosted-screening program that gives parishes, organizations - even individuals - the opportunity to bring St. Augustine to the big screen in their town, and in the venue of their choice. "We look forward to working with parishes, organizations and individuals across the country to bring St. Augustine's life to as many people as possible," said Ignatius Press Director of Marketing Anthony Ryan. "This is a tremendous opportunity to launch the Year of Faith and engage in the New Evangelization." Ryan is hosting the premiere at CMN, and will be available for interviews throughout the event.

The first two hosted screenings have very special meaning, and will occur before the official premiere of the film at the CMN show. The Colorado Catholic Herald and Aquinas and More Catholic Goods will host RESTLESS HEART at 7 p.m. on Aug. 22 in Colorado Springs to benefit Catholic Charities of Central Colorado. The screening will be in the Lon Chaney Theater inside City Auditorium in downtown Colorado Springs.

On Aug. 28 - the Feast of St. Augustine - the Augustine Institute will host a special screening of RESTLESS HEART in Greenwood Village, Colo. Other hosted screenings already are being finalized in San Antonio, Texas, and Washington, D.C. Ignatius is offering the opportunity to host screenings of the film through late November.

RESTLESS HEART provides a historic backdrop and one of the Church's most beloved and well-known saints - Augustine of Hippo - as its central character to tell a familiar story - as timely today as it was only a few generations after Jesus walked on Earth. It is the story of one who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass - and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light. It also chronicles the collapse of the Roman world and how Augustine laid the intellectual foundations of what became Europe.

An exclusive, extended trailer of the film is available online now at www.RestlessHeartFilm.com. For more information or to schedule an interview with Ignatius Press Director of Marketing Anthony Ryan before, during or after the CMN Trade Show, please contact Tim Lilley (678-990-9032 or email TLilley@MaximusMG.com) or Kevin Wandra (678-990-9032 or email KWandra@Maximusmg.com) of The Maximus Group.
