Father Nicosia, the Angel of the Lepers, by Beyond Thirty-Nine
Directed by Ciriaco Offeddu and Angelo Paratico
This documentary film bears witness to a living saint, Father Gaetano Nicosia, who was called “the angel of the lepers” for his work in the leprosarium of Coloane, near Macau, where he helped those unfortunate sufferers. Moreover, he founded and made possible the construction of various schools for abandoned young people, dormitories, and institutes for the young and the elderly, the disabled and the severely handicapped.
The production of this film was made possible thanks to a crowdfunding operation, which collected the necessary funds from a splendid number of friends and associations (listed in the closing credits).
