Picturehouse announced that FATIMA, the inspirational story of the events leading up to the astonishing Miracle of Fatima in Portugal, will be re-released across the country on Friday, May 7, 2021. The film will be presented exclusively at AMC Theatres.
Experience the astonishing story of three children whose shared spiritual visions heralded a miracle that has inspired millions in Picturehouse’s FATIMA, the uplifting drama based on the captivating history behind one of the Catholic Church’s most fabled places of pilgrimage. Filled with timely themes of faith, hope and resilience, FATIMA’s release in theaters coincides with the 104th anniversary of that incredible event which took place on May 13, 1917. FATIMA was awarded the DOVE Seal of Approval for Family Viewing and will receive the Family Award at the upcoming LA Italia Film, Fashion and Art Festival in Los Angeles, held April 18-24.
“Picturehouse is proud to present FATIMA in theaters everywhere as the nation opens up,” said Bob Berney, Picturehouse CEO. “The timing of Mother’s Day on May 9 and the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima on May 13 tees up a great reason to return to the cinemas and celebrate this beautiful story.”
In 1917, outside the parish of Fátima, Portugal, a 10-year-old girl and her two younger cousins witness multiple visitations of the Virgin Mary, who tells them that only prayer and suffering will bring an end to World War I. Word of the sighting spreads across the country, inspiring religious pilgrims to flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle. Inspired by real-life events and starring Goran Višnjić (Beginners), Joaquim de Almeida (“Queen of the South”), Stephanie Gil (Terminator: Dark Fate), Lúcia Moniz (Love, Actually), with Golden Globe® nominee Sônia Braga (Aquarius) and Academy Award® nominee Harvey Keitel (The Piano), FATIMA has been hailed by critics as “beautiful and moving,” (Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times) and is an uplifting story about the power of faith.
Directed by Marco Pontecorvo (“Game of Thrones”) with a script from Pontecorvo, Valerio D’Annunzio (“Il Restauratore”) and Barbara Nicolosi (In Memory), FATIMA also features two songs from the world-renowned Italian operatic tenor and Grammy Award®-nominee Andrea Bocelli. The songs, “Gloria” and lead single “Gratia Plena,” which is a brand-new original song composed for the movie by Paolo Buonvino, are also featured on the film’s soundtrack album, and Bocelli’s latest release, “Believe.”
