Description:

"Persecution is a 40 minutes 8mm film produced by three teen agers of 12, 13, and 14, and depicts the story of a priest during a persecution, his life and death, and the subsequent destruction of the persecutors. Though lacking in expert camera work, the film was nevertheless serious in its approach and amazing in its construction for such a lengthy endeavor. It is for these reasons, and also to encourage more serious film work by young amateurs, that the judges awarded this film a special citation that reads, "For Outstanding Film Production by a Youth Group" PSA Journal, Sept. 1965, 51.
