Acting graduate Andreas Muñoz stars in major new movie.

Ignatius of Loyola

Above is the trailer for a historical Roman Catholic drama shot in English in the Philippines about the life of  Saint Ignatius of Loyola, it stars former acting RCS graduate Andreas Muñoz.

Saint Ignatius of Loyola was a Spanish priest and theologian, who founded the religious order called the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) and became its first Superior General, he was often called 'The Saint of Second Chances.'

Ignatius is remembered as a talented spiritual director. He recorded his method in a celebrated treatise called the Spiritual Exercises, a simple set of meditations, prayers, and other mental exercises, first published in 1548.

Andreas as an acting student was great user of the drama library when he was a student at RCS.  He would be happy to know that when the film is published later this summer on DVD we will be first to buy it for the library DVD collection.
