"Liberating a Continent: John Paul II and the Fall of Communism," a new documentary film that depicts the role played by Pope John Paul II in the fall of Communism and the liberation of central and Eastern Europe, will be airing on local PBS stations throughout the summer.   

Upcoming dates are June 19 on KRBC in San Francisco and July 3 on WFYI in Indianapolis. "Additional markets throughout the United States will be announced on a rolling basis and it will continue to air throughout the coming year," Vanessa Santilli, the film's publicist, told CNSNews.

"Liberating a Continent" was written and directed by David Naglieri. It is narrated by Jim Caviezel ("Passion of the Christ" and "Person of Interest") and features interviews with papal biographer George Weigel, Polish historian Norman Davies, John Paul's lifelong assistant Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, and Solidarity founder Lech Walesa.
