Story
WHO IS IGNACIO DE LOYOLA?
IGNACIO DE LOYOLA is a full-length independent feature film about St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. It is an incisive and thrilling look at the life of the man behind the legend, following his transformation from a brash, impulsive youth obsessed with women and sword-fighting; to the masterful, charismatic leader of an order that would change the face of Christendom forever.

IGNACIO DE LOYOLA chronicles the life of a young soldier, Iñigo (Ignacio de Loyola), who was forced to give up his dreams of knighthood when he was crippled in battle. He starts pursuing a wild desire to become a saint — only to realize, upon being arrested by the Spanish Inquisition for heresy, that he must now pay the true price of sainthood: obedience to God’s voice, even unto death.

About
Jesuit Communications (JesCom) is involved in the production of audiovisual materials for evangelization and education. Its mission statement is inspired by a prayer that Fr. Jim Reuter used to recite together with his crew before every performance of a play: “Give us the grace to present this play so that we will bring all those who are touched by it and all those who are involved in it closer to God.” Thus, part of the JesCom mission is to use media – from the visual, to the musical – in the most effective manner possible, in order to empower the Church to proclaim the Gospel and its values.

History
The Jesuit Communications Foundation finds its roots with JESCOM, or the Jesuits Engaged in Social Communications, formed in New Orleans, USA back in 1968. It was Fr. Jim Reuter who organized the local chapter JESCOM Philippines, together with Fr. Paul Brunner and Nim Gonzales. At the time, it served as the secretariat to the Provincial in communication matters and activities. It also worked closely with Fr. Reuter at the National Office of Mass Media (NOMM), the media arm of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. JESCOMPhil was involved in radio soap operas, rural mimeo press, and various seminars and conferences on Communications.

In 1972, Paul Brunner started SONOLUX Asia. SONOLUX specialized in audiovisual training seminars for evangelization and soundslide production. By this time, the JESCOM office had moved from the Provincial Curia to the Ateneo Communications Department under Nim Gonzales. JESCOM continued to conduct training seminars and workshops in media, but also began to provide technical services to the Communications students of the Ateneo School of Arts and Sciences, and to come up with video productions.

In 1995, the Jesuit Communications Foundation (JesCom) was established, a product of the merger between JESCOM and SONOLUX Asia. Today, JesCom continues to serve the Church in the country and region through its productions and training workshops.

Projects
Today, JesCom utililizes the latest video, production and musical recording technologies and combines them with the talents of highly skilled producers, directors, writers, musicians, actors and editors to produce high-quality, people-oriented print, broadcast and audio-visual materials.

We produce video programs in the areas of Values and Religious Education, Philippine Culture and History, Socio-Political Issues, and Spiritural and Pastoral Ministry.

JesCom's Jesuit Music Ministry (JMM) promotes liturgical and inspirational music in Filipino and English published in CDs, cassette tapes, and songbooks.

JesCom's Publications publishes books in the areas of spirituality, homiletics, pastoral ministry, and Jesuit interest.

The Garage , our training facility, aims to train the lay, religious and pastoral workers in media education and production.
