ABOUT THE FILM

THE DOCUMENTARY FILM “40 DAYS…” TALKS ABOUT THE SOLUTION OF THE ABORTION PROBLEM, ABOUT THE FRUITS AND RESULTS OF THE LARGEST GLOBAL PRAYER AND PRO-LIFE INITIATIVE “40 DAYS FOR LIFE”. THE PLOT OF THE DOCUMENTARY ABOUNDS IN NUMEROUS TESTIMONIALS OF PEOPLE PARTICIPATING IN THE PRAYER, WOMEN AND MEN WHO CHOSE LIFE. SHOTS WITH THEIR CHILDREN ENRICH THE WHOLE STORY OF THE DOCUMENTARY. TESTIMONIALS OF THOSE WHO WERE THREATENED BY ABORTION, BUT ALSO OF THOSE SUFFERING FROM THE WOUNDS OF ABORTION ARE PART OF THIS BIG FILM STORY TOO.

THE FILM STORY IS AN INTRODUCTION INTO THE TRUE REALITY OF FIGHT BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH, AS WELL AS INTO THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION OF WHAT MAKES THE FOUNDATION OF THE PRO-LIFE FIGHT AND WHAT MAKES THE SOURCE OF THE CULTURE OF LIFE. THE FILM WAS SHOT IN VARIOUS PLACES OF THE WHOLE CROATIA AND WAS ENRICHED BY SHOTS FROM BUDAPEST, LONDON, ROME, AND HOUSTON.

THREE “40 DAYS FOR LIFE” LEADERS PARTICIPATE IN THE FILM AMONG MANY. THE FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT SHAWN CARNEY, INTERNATIONAL DIRECTOR ROBERT COLQUHOUN, AND PRESIDENT FOR CROATIA ANTE ČALJKUŠIĆ.

THE PRESIDENT FOR CROATIA, ANTE ČALJKUŠIĆ, SERVED AS SCREENWRITER AND DIRECTOR ON THE FILM, AND IVAN LOVRIĆ DEALT WITH SHOOTING, EDITING, SOUND, AND LIGHTING.

Ante Čaljkušić

SCREENWRITER AND DIRECTOR

Since I was 12 years old, I have started feeling love for acting and drama, and in high school I developed a great love for film. During my theology study at college, I devoted myself even more to film education. With Ivan Lovrić I collaborated on an array of professional projects and this documentary represents a culmination in our collaboration.
I would like to add that I feel deep respect towards all the participants of the documentary who showed their trust having shared their intimate stories with us. They let us come into their private lives, in painful and difficult moments. I have dedicated this documentary to the Heart of Jesus and the Heart of Mary, because after my personal dedication to them, there has been a series of wonders in my life, and one of these wonders is the spread of the Kingdom of God with this film.

Don Damir Stojić

The testimonials are the core of this documentary. They prove the effectiveness of prayer. I highly recommend watching this film because it really enriches a person watching it.

Bosiljka Bačura

President of the Association "Djetešce, na sunašce"

It is a film of great quality, full of touching testimonials. I am sure that, due to the film, numerous lives will be saved and that the parents of the saved will rejoice and be thankful.

Pater Marko Glogović

I am grateful to all our mothers and all other participants for sharing their intimacy with the world. They are true pro-life missionaries!

Petra Milković

President of the Association "40 dana za život"

A very touching film with strong testimonials. Thrilling, humble, open, and sincere. I definitely recommend watching it.

Vice John Batarelo

President of the Association "Vigilare"

I was thrilled by shots of people praying and of saved children taking turn one after the other. The film succeeded in demonstrating the importance and beauty of people's presence in front of hospitals.

Blaženka Bakula

President of the Association ''Betlehem – Zagreb''

This is a wonderful film about the beauty of unborn children and pro-life activism. It speaks powerfully about how lives have been changed and transformed with prayer and the 40 Days for Life campaign through grace filled encounters in Croatia. I highly recommend it.

Robert Colquhoun

Director, International Campaigns, 40 Days for Life

This film shows the heart, will, and trust in God that Croatians have to end abortion in their country. The passion and sacrifice in this documentary are motivated by the Gospel. My hope is that God uses this film to inspire the rest of Europe to resist the onslaught secularism that is attacking the joy and freedom of the family.
