New York Film Academy graduate Francesca Saracino’s film, The Night of the Shroud, recently won Best Documentary, Best Director, and Best Visual Effects at the Los Angeles Movie Awards. The controversial documentary investigates the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man, believed by some to be the cloth in which Jesus was buried. The investigation is hosted by Italian actress Rosalinda Celentano, known for her role as Satan in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. It uncovers previously unseen research papers, audio files, videos, and correspondence from researchers, cardinals, and Pope Benedict XVI. Francesca Saracino will visit the Universal Studios campus on Monday, June 11, for a screening.
The free event is open to all students, staff, and alumni in Welles at 7 p.m.
