Medjugorje Man - *World Premiere

This observational documentary follows John to this place of pilgrimage to observe the pilgrim in this place of prayer. This film does not seek to question or answer the apparitions but to explore the journey this Irish man took each year for twenty years to find peace, solitude and a shared belief. This was John’s last visit to Medjugorje, he now lives with dementia and is cared for by his family
