Film on Augustine to be shown at the Egyptian

Published: Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Court Immaculate Conception 996, DeKalb, will bring the film “Restless Heart: Confessions of Augustine” to the Egyptian Theatre.

Filmed in Europe, this is the first full-length feature movie on St. Augustine. “Restless Heart” uses a historic backdrop to tell the true story of Augustine of Hippo – born in North Africa, he is one of the Catholic church’s most beloved and well-known saints.

Its message is as timely today as it was only a few generations after Jesus walked on Earth. It is the story of one who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass – and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light. It also chronicles the collapse of the Roman world and how Augustine laid the intellectual foundations of what became Europe.

The movie will be shown at 2 p.m. Nov. 18 at the Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. Second St., DeKalb.

Tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students. Tickets are available by phone at 815-758-1225 or online at www.egyptiantheatre.org.

After the movie there will be a discussion led by CDA State Chaplain Bonaventure Okoro.
