The Butterfly Circus wins Grand Prize in Nashville

Those of you who remember the movie "Bella" and our friend Eduardo Verastegui will be happy to know that the fine young actor continues to use his talent to advance the arts by his support for works that uphold and promote the dignity of the human person. His latest work is as the mysterious showman in "The Butterfly Circus," a traveling troupe of circus performers entertaining small towns during the Great Depression.

The film is known in the industry as a "short" with a running time of 20 minutes. The message is one of hope. The film was entered in the Doorpost Film Project, which according to its site "exists to encourage truth-seeking visionaries by honoring their creativity as filmmakers, serving them in the context of building community and sharing their discoveries with the world so that others may have hope."

I strongly encourage you to watch "The Butterfly Circus" and then tell me what you think of it. Your comments will be sent to the Eduardo and others so that they will know how this film has affected you and the community.

I have deliberately not given you any of the story details. Watch the film and see how this work reflects on the work we do at Arizona Right to Life and indeed what is being accomplished throughout the entire pro-life movement.

Thanks for posting the link on this film. Great work. Not only is it a call to promote life....it speaks to the other downfalls of our society. Blaming others for our shortcomings, using our skills to do harm, taking advantage of people until they serve our selfishness and casting them out. Great film. Sent out the link to many of my friends. This type of work needs to be out there and promoted.

Thanks,
Dan
