By BIS Correspondent

Laura is a short movie, running time 35 minutes, based on the life of Bl. Laura Vicu�a. The previous movies were full-length conmmerical movies on the life of Don Bosco. Johnny depicted the early life of Don Bosco upto his departure for seminary life, while Bosco explored into the life and ministry of Don Bosco.

Laura was shot in Wellington and Ooty with the help of cine artistes. ``People are already using this movie for catechesis and value education sessions. We have a plan to dub this movie into Kannada and other languages,`` said Fr.Prince Puthanagady, the Executive Producer of Laura. Fr. Prince was the executive producer of the movie, Bosco too.

Johnny and Bosco had already been dubbed into many Indian languages and subtitled in many Indian and international languages. The English subtitled version of Laura was released by Fr. Maria Arokiam Kanaga, the South Asian Regional on 3 August 2013. The movie was screened for the Chapter members of the Province earlier.

Fr. Thomas Anchukandam, the Provincial of INK, had released the non-subtitled version during the Provincial Chapter.
