A documentary film about Nicolas Barré

A documentary film has been produced by the Officina della Comunicazione of Bergamo on Nicolas Barré, on the occasion of the 4th centenary of his birth.

The genesis of the project

The initial idea was that of a virtual pilgrimage to the places where Nicolas Barré lived. The travel restrictions for the film crew transformed the project.

The process

The film director, Omar Pesenti, based his project on the book "Better than Light". Then he conducted various interviews and filmed the places of origin. The documentary is produced in French and Italian, according to the people interviewed, but a dubbing can be made in other languages.


Catholic television stations interested in broadcasting the documentary can purchase the rights
