Dancing at Lughnasa
Dancing at Lughnasa, movie made in 1998: a sad story about five unmarried sisters getting old together, some place in rural Ireland in the 1930's. Their brother, Father Jack had spent many years in Africa, as a missionary. He came back old and senile. I'm just thinking: maybe his senility was a mark of holiness, enriched as it was by his long African experience. Was he a rigid monotheist anymore, stupidly believing only in the Abrahamic universe? He had at a certain point a great phrase, people in Africa see in their dreams the ancient gods.
