Documentary Film on Father Kino
May 18, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am$7.50
Arizona and Sonora are not the only states that venerate Eusebio Francisco Kino, the first European to enter Santa Cruz valley. During the 300th anniversary of Fr. Kino’s death in 2011, a group of more than 30 people traveled from Italy to Arizona and Sonora to celebrate the life of this remarkable man. Included were family descendants from his hometown of Segno, a delegation of church officials from the Italian Diocese of Trento, and municipal and provincial dignitaries. This Italian contingent created a video documentary of the most important events that took place during the 300th anniversary celebration interwoven with the story of Kino’s life. In recognition of the 17th Annual International Kino Festival, we will show this film at the Tubac Presidio on Sunday, May 18. We will have special refreshments for the performance! $7.50 adult, $2 youth 7-13, children free.
