Madrid, Spain. Contracorriente Producciones, the Spanish cinematographic company that is preparing the movie ‘A Prohibited God’, which will depict the experience of our brother martyrs of Barbastro, continues to project that the movie will be released this coming Easter 2013.
Last November, after almost forty intense days of filming, the film has entered the phase of editing and production. Gone are the rush, the repetition of scenes, concern for the rain and bad weather… but also those moments of working together and enjoyment for the work which was alluded to by several actors interviewed by the media.
The company has issued a statement thanking the welcome and good well of the inhabitants of Ciudad Rodrigo, a Salamancan town in which the greater part of the filming has been done. Frs. Manuel A. Tamargo, the Provincial de Santiago, and José Beruete, Director of the Museum of the mmartyrs in Barbastro, traveled there at different times to assist with various aspects of the filming and helped to refine some scenes.
The cinematic experience involved nearly four hundred people including actors, crew and extras; and has enjoyed the cooperation of the bishop’s office of Ciudad Rodrigo, his Council and Seminary, civil authorities and not a few merchants and local residents.
Interestingly Ciudad Rodrigo hosted a Claretian community for over fifty years (1894-1947), and Catholics and the bishops keep a warm memory of the Congregation. From the Diocese, small in size and population, has emerged a good group of Claretian Missionaries, many of them still active.
The producer has put much of the experience of the filming (photos, interviews …) on http://undiosprohibido.wordpress.com
