Focus Years: 2008 | Country: Mexico
This documentary gives you an insight into the crisis undergone by the Catholic Church as well as by an abandoned society, poor and marginal, that chose a religion that perfectly fits into their needs and beliefs. NiÃ±o Fidencio was a healer who lived his life taking care of the ill in the recondite town of the northeastern desert called Espinazo, Nuevo LeÃ³n. With thousands of followers, some of whom are still living, he has already been given the status of a miraculous saint; an exceptional human being, a God-send for treatment and comfort. When Fidencio died in 1938, a growing religion began to form, that with time, expanded and gained strength. Nowadays, there are thousands of Fidencistas scattered around the country.
