Directed and produced by filmmaker Edward J. Roy of J6 Entertainment in New York, the film is a one-hour documentary that explores the life of the thirteenth century Saint Anthony of Padua. A journey punctuated by moments of loss as young Anthony searched for the right path in life, which led to the courageous choice of total surrender to God’s plan for him.
Filmed in various locations in Portugal and Italy, the production of this film was made entirely possible through the generous financial contributions of the Longo family. They have dedicated the film to the memory of Rosa and Antonino Longo - who instilled not only a love of family, but also a solid foundation based on hard work, good values and a sense of doing the right thing, that guide and inspire their family’s legacy. The Longo family has a great devotion to St. Anthony of Padua and wished through this film to make his story known to contemporary audiences.
