Journey to one of the world’s most prolific shrines.

Documentary. In Production.

Synopsis: People have been visiting Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, ever since local children first reported visions of the Virgin Mary in 1981. To capture a genuine pilgrimage experience, Stella Mar Films (Apparition Hill) held a video contest and chose eight young people to visit Medjugorje during the annual Youth Fest. Follow the winners as they scour the rugged slopes of Cross Mountain in search of something greater than themselves, in turn discovering the widespread fruits of one of the most prolific shrines in the world.


The Winning Entries

Here are the original entries in our video contest from the eight people who were ultimately chosen to be in the film. Their collective journey to Medjugorje, which took place in the summer of 2015, was filled with excitement and surprises.
