St. Peter’s presents Del Mar Spirit Film Festival


The Del Mar Spirit Film Festival, presented by St. Peter’s Del Mar, will screen See award-winning documentaries Wednesdays starting Feb. 25 that will touch your soul, make you think and move your spirit.

One film (“Watchers of the Sky”) tells the story of the Holocaust survivor who coined the term “genocide,” while “The Singing Revolution” illustrates the peaceful form of protest — singing — that empowered Estonians during Soviet occupation.

“The Green Prince,” meanwhile, looks at the son of a Hamas founder who became an informant for Israel, and “Sisters of Selma” meets the white Catholic nuns who joined the bloody civil rights marches of 1965, as they reflect on those events years later. These extraordinary feature films exemplify human beings struggling with moral issues and personal transformation.

The scheduled lineup:

• Feb. 25: “The Green Prince”

• March 4: “Watchers of the Sky”

• March 11: TBA

• March 18: “Sisters of Selma”

• March 25: “The Singing Revolution”

Each evening begins with a Soup Supper at 6 p.m., followed by the screening, and a Q&A afterward with the filmmakers. Each evening will end about 8:30 p.m.

St. Peter’s is at 334 14th St. in Del Mar Village, one block east of Highway 101.
