Romero starring Raul Julia DVD
Romero said:"If they kill me, I shall rise in the Salvadorean people."
Romero is a compelling and deeply moving look at the life of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, who made the ultimate sacrifice in a passionate stand against social injustice and oppression in his country.
This film chronicles the transformation of Romero from an apolitical, complacent priest to a committed leader of the Salvadoran people.
Romero is a man of God forced by the unspeakable events going on around him to take a stand- a stand that ultimately leads to his assassination in 1980 at the hands of the military junta.
105 minutes long and color.
