Augustine by Denison Witmer, a new song and video for Fr. Rene movie

Today we're excited to announce the release of Augustine, a new song and music video by recording artist Denison Witmer.

Denison wrote Augustine specifically for our film Where There Is Darkness, and parts of the song are used in some of the film's most poignant moments.

The haunting lyrics tell the story of Fr. Rene and the tragic events that led to the beloved priest's disappearance.

We made this music video for Augustine featuring clips from the movie. Watch it and let us know what you think in the comments box below!


THANK YOU TO OUR APOSTLES OF LOVE COMMUNITY FOR MAKING THIS VIDEO POSSIBLE!

Augustine by Denison Witmer is also available for download and listening on music streaming sites Spotify and Bandcamp.

Please share the video and help spread the word! You can find and share the music video at:

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Denison Witmer also served as Music Supervisor for the film!

Denison is a dear friend of Stella Mar Films. He's an incredibly talented indie singer-songwriter whose song Little Flowers was also featured in the most poignant moment of our previous film, Apparition Hill.

Denison’s music is featured throughout Where There is Darkness in both instrumental and choral arrangements. His “peace prayer” song is our favorite rendition of that song we’ve ever heard, and it plays in a very important part of the film. We feel that his song Augustine captures the theme and thoughts of the film perfectly.

If that wasn’t enough, Denison has an acting role in the film: he’s the man in the dream sequence who is murdered by a hammer.

He's also been to Medjugorje with us twice, and once to Assisi, Italy, because of his love for St. Francis. Some of the clips we shot with him in Asissi are featured in the music video.

    Hello! I’ve heard about this movie, as its been in development. This video has so piqued my interest to both watch it and to find a way to host a screening in my corner of Washington state . I will forward it to my parish’s faith formation director, with the hope of making that happen! By the way, my husband and I are returning to Medugorje in a few weeks. We were there in the summer of 2017 for the first visit. I purchased “Apparition Hill,” after a viewing was held for the group involved in this upcoming trip. I’d love to see that movie, also, screened in the Vancouver, Washington, area. Your productions inspire me to do what I can to make that happen—for both movies! God bless you with an outpouring of His strength and power for your selfless efforts to share His miracles of love.

    Many years ago, my wife and I went to a Mass in St. Augustine which Fr. Rene was the celebrant. We were very moved when he shared with the congregation his Medjugorje “Illumination” experience.
    We are too old to travel now. When will we be able to buy the dvd?
