LourdesUnknown - 2014
In this landmark series, New York Times best-selling author Bruce Feiler travels with American pilgrims on six historic routes to Lourdes, Japan, Jerusalem, Mecca, India, and Nigeria-changing how we view our own spiritual journeys. This film accompanies U.S. combat veterans to Lourdes, France as they participate in an annual International Military Pilgrimage. Convening with thousands of soldiers from around the world, they are able to share traumatic experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan that resulted in mental and physical wounds. The camaraderie provides a unique space for spiritual reflection and healing, and many express a newfound peace and will to live after bathing in the sacred shrine-regardless of their religious affiliation.
