Catholic Oscar Nominated Film - Give Up Yer Aul Sins

Catholic Oscar Nominated Film
Give Up Yer Aul Sins

I repeat this post every so often for new readers.These videos are based upon the 1960s recordings of young children telling Bible stories in an Irish classroom to their schoolteacher. 

 When a film crew arrives at an inner city Dublin National School to record the children, the result is a warm, funny and spontaneous animated documentary, featuring young children telling the story of John the Baptist, The birth of Jesus, the Crucifixion, Saint Patrick and others. 

Give Up Yer Aul Sins combines simple humour with clever animation to create films with a timeless quality and appeal. Give Up Yer Aul Sins was screened in almost 50 film festivals and Oscar nominated.

The most amazing thing is the bible knowledge of all the children at that time in Catholic Ireland.
