When Faith Moves Mountains

When Faith Moves Mountains

shown in the side chapel of St Mary’s Church, is a documentary charting an "epic response at once futile and heroic, absurd and urgent” to the  recent political turmoil in Peru. On April 11, 2002, 500 volunteers were supplied with shovels and asked to form a single line at the foot of a giant sand dune outside Lima. This human comb chain moved a 1,600 foot-long sand dune about four inches from its original position.
