IMG_0451On 11th Aug 2015, over 1600 students from Stds. V to X saw the engrossing movie ‘Saint John Bosco – Mission to Love’. As part of the bicentenary celebration of the birth of Don Bosco, the epic movie was screened for the students and staff of DB Matunga which dramatizes the many challenges that Don Bosco had to overcome from his childhood through founding his religious order, the Salesians, for helping educate boys. Flavio Insinna gives a winning performance as John (Don) Bosco, the great priest and educator of youth from the tough streets of Turin, Italy. Beautifully filmed in Italy, the movie sketches the life of Don Bosco who, growing up without a father, developed compassion for the many orphans that he cared for. He faced persecution from both secular society and the Church as he fought to build a place to house and educate the homeless, outcast youth of Turin. His deep faith, creative imagination and profound charity shine through in this wonderful film.
