Film Viewing: The Hidden Rebellion, the Untold Story of the French Revolution

February 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The Hidden Rebellion tells the story of simple, faithful people who “gave up the world…for heaven.”

This docu-film is a searing examination of the events and, even more importantly, of the ideas surrounding one of history’s most chilling instances of genocide – the 150,000-person extermination of the people of the Vendee during the French Revolution.  The destruction of the population in this idyllic French countryside was a documented goal of the French Revolutionary forces and raised important questions related to freedom of conscience, political tyranny, and religious persecution that are highly relevant considering today’s geo-political environment.

The French producer, Daniel Rabourdin, will present the Rocky Mount premiere of his movie and have a Q & A in the parish hall.

Donations are suggested.
