About the Film

Encountering the harmony of Man, Woman, and Creation through film.

In 2014, the Vatican hosted a three-day  international and interreligious colloquium on the complementarity of man and woman in marriage. Over 350 participants gathered in the Vatican synod hall, bringing together representatives from 14 religious traditions and 23 countries to uphold the beauty and wisdom of marriage in the face of efforts to redefine it.

One of the highlights of the meeting was a series of six 15 minute videos underlining the importance and valuable contribution of marriage. As these videos state:

The ancient, organic, and timeless design of man and woman has been revered across all cultures throughout human history. There is a singular wisdom and beauty of this complementarity that “fits” with the universe. The family, founded on marriage, is our first school in what it means to be human, how to love, to seek communion with and be a gift to another person: man for woman, and woman for man. This relationship between man and woman—including their sexual union and its fruits—is the very “grammar” of society.
