Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village (2016)

Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village Info » Everyone wants to believe in miracles. But how many towns are built on one?. In 1879, fifteen people in the small Irish village of Knock, County Mayo bore witness to an apparition of the Virgin Mary. The village was declared a Marian Shrine and today welcomes more than one million pilgrims annually. The film builds a vibrant portrait of the phenomenon through its devotees- invalids seeking cures; the eight sibling owners of rival religious merchandise shops; a woman relieved of multiple sclerosis during a 1970s pilgrimage; feisty Mildred, advocate for gender parity for the shrine's handmaids; the staff of the Knock Marriage Bureau and Fr Richard Gibbons, charismatic, outward-looking Parish Priest, on a mission to entice new transatlantic visitors via Knock Airport. With its references to "the scandals", falling church attendances and the eighth amendment (abortion), the film presents a timely reflection on the position of the Church in modern Ireland. For the faithful it celebrates a beacon of spiritual hope; for sceptics it opens an enticing window on an anachronistic but thriving world. (ImDb)
