The True Story of Christopher Columbus is a thorough examination of the life and legacy of the fearless discoverer of America. Produced by the Knights of Columbus and narrated by actor Chazz Palminteri, this film provides insight into Christopher Columbus' remarkable genius as a sea navigator as well as his deep desire to bring all nations to Christ. If you missed Sunday night’s premiere on EWTN, you can now watch this documentary at KofC.org/Columbus and on our YouTube channel.
Through expert interviews and archival footage, we look at the origins of Columbus Day and the symbolic role that Columbus has for Catholic immigrants, especially Italian Americans. Finally, the film addresses the current indictments against Christopher Columbus with boldness and exposes the motives behind the attacks of revisionist historians.
“Courage and Conviction” shows why Christopher Columbus remains not only a man worthy of admiration, but a noble icon of what it means to be a Catholic and an American.
