Los Angeles, CA - July 15, 2009 - The much anticipated, “LOST ROAD OF THE POPES...Via Papale” shot entirely in Rome on High Definition, will be released domestically later this year in dioceses across the country. The documentary film tells the true story of the Catholic Church’s stunning recovery after the Sack of Rome in 1527. It describes the most profound urban and religious comeback in history. “So few Catholics know about this turbulent time in Catholic Church history” says Thomas Sammon, the film’s producer. “We are thrilled to be able to bring this story to the screen. We hope that Catholics and non-Catholics everywhere will grow more deeply interested in the Church’s inspired history. It was a period of incredible architectural and artistic accomplishment achieved against the backdrop of the rebuilding of the Catholic Church.” Emmy award winning actor, Brian Dennehy will lend his voice to the film as narrator. Also appearing in the film with their insights and perspective are experts from the Catholic clergy, professors, historians, authors, and archeologists. “Because the Vatican granted our camera crews unprecedented access to so many places in St. Peter’s Basilica and across Rome, we are able to tell this story through stunning footage and extraordinary images, set against a spectacular musical score ” said Sammon. Consortis Film will release the documentary later this year as a limited engagement.
