We liked the film, the figure of a man who is a humanist, teacher, and visionary regarding the education he wanted, a man who is essentially good. A fine film, well designed, and with magnificent music."

The audience thanked Goya Productions and Three Columns Entertaiment, the Teresian Association, Director Pablo Moreno, actors Raul Escudero (Father Poveda), Elena Furiase (Pepita Segovia), Miguel Berlanga (Felipe), Silvia Garcia (Marina), Fran Calvo (Manolo), and all the large team that has helped to give shape in a credible and professional manner to the figure of St. Pedro Poveda, founder of the Teresian Association and and martyr of the faith.

Loreto Ballester, former President of the Teresian Associaton, spoke to ZENIT and said that there was a long silence as they read the long list of names of the people who have made the movie and the list of persons, entities made possible the film. In her opinion, they have used very well the unique environments of Guadix, Covadonga, Oviedo, Jaen which to alow those who did not live in Poveda’s time feel the atmosphere around him in Madrid, in the last period of  Poveda's life.

She continued "And this applause followed the heavy silence because of what that the film leaves inside each person. Near me, I saw Father Angel Garcia (Messengers of Peace), a nephew of Pepita Segovia with his family, with whom I have maintained communication over the years, Canons of the Cathedral of Madrid.”


"A little further, I saw the abbot of the Royal Basilica of Covadonga who goes through the same steps Poveda  walked on to visit the Santina, Monsignor Carlos Osorio, Archbishop of Madrid, a film producer with long experience, a young youth movement following Poveda’s steps today, and many others,” said Loreto Ballester.
