BEHIND THE SCENES
Filmed on location in Argentina and Michigan, this unprecedented documentary offers the rare chance to go behind the walls of the Miles Christi religious community to discover its courageous calling and joyful, yet determined, spirit. ON ASSIGNMENT uncovers the story of the order's founding and its important work to preach the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius across the United States.
In-depth interviews with Miles Christi members, a beautiful original music score, and rich cinematography create a powerful immersion experience that will inspire you to fight for holiness in your own life.
