 In 2010 Mary's Dowry Productions filmed some key moments from the life of Saint Nicholas Owen using costumed portrayals, sets, backdrops, on location and scenes. These were done to run silently beneath the narrative of Saint Nicholas Owen telling his story, accompanied by beautifully contemplative and uplifting music composed by Bernadette Bevans. The film offers a prayerful encounter with Saint Nicholas Owen and although it is filled with information and historical context it is first and foremost a spiritual film.
