"Nine Days That Changed the World" to be Screened at AMU

The film Nine Days that Changed the World will be shown in special screenings in Ave Maria this weekend.

The production, by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, documents the June, 1979 visit by Pope John Paul II to his native Poland -- a trip that the film says "created a revolution of conscience that fundamentally reshaped the spiritual and political landscape of the 20th century."

Nine Days that Changed the World will be screened twice on Saturday, April 17 -- at 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Henkels academic building and is open to residents, AMU students, staff and faculty.

Mr. Gingrich and his wife, Callista, will be attending a showing of the film in Naples Sunday evening that is sponsored by the Ave Maria School of Law. That screening is sold out.

The weekend showings in Ave Maria were arranged by Ed Rivera, who leads the Ave Maria Youth Group. There is another showing of the film Sunday, April 18, at 4:30 p.m. specifically for students in grades 8-12. There is no regular evening meeting of the youth group Sunday.

More information on Nine Days that Changed the World can be found at the film's website here.
