A movie about the life of an Irish nun who died in an earthquake in Ecuador will be launched on the second anniversary of her death in her hometown Derry.
All or Nothing tells the story of Sr Clare Crockett who entered the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother in 2001, aged 18. From 2006 she lived in their communities in Spain, the US and Ecuador. She was killed during an earthquake in Playa Prieta on April 16, 2016.
Clare had always wanted to be a great Hollywood actress, and aged 14 she began to land acting roles, hosting a Nickelodeon programme at just 16.
However, even when she landed a small role in a feature film she was not happy. “Neither success, nor fame, nor human love could fill me. I knew that only by doing what God wanted could I be truly happy,” she recounted. Following a greater call, she entered religious life.
All or Nothing will have its first screening at Brunswick Moviebowl, Derry at 7pm on Monday, April 16. “There will be no charge,” said Sr Ruth O’Callaghan.
