Title: DON BOSCO: THE STORY OF THE APOSTLE OF YOUTH
Ben Gazzar stars in this classic film About St. John Bosco, the beloved 19th century Italian priest who sought out the homeless youth of Turin to help them have a better life. He overcame incredible challenges, including the government who wanted him out of the way, an archbishop who tried to silence him, and the revolution that put a price on his head. But nothing could stop Don Bosco from rescuing the poor and outcast children to give them a home, teach them work skills, and catechize them in the Catholic faith. This is an inspiring story of a brave and holy priest whose single-handed battle to save children of the streets inspired the formation of the Salesians, which is now a world-wide religious order that carries on his work with youth everywhere. This special edition includes a 43 minute "Making of the Film" documentary never before seen that tells the behind the scenes story of the film and introduces the actors in the movie.
