Het genadeoord

Short documentary, 1977, 59 min.

Documentary by Cherry Duyns about a pilgrimage to Lourdes by Dutch Catholics. He carefully registers how many elderly and sick people make the long journey by train, encouraged by prayers over the sound system. How they participate in services and processions in Lourdes. How they find solace in taking a bath in the holy water. And how they, not cured, but invigorated and provided with Lourdes water, set out on the homeward journey.
