For Greater Glory

For Greater Glory: Directed By Dean Wright

The Cristeros War may be one of the “best kept secrets” of early twentieth century Mexican history. Touched off by a rebellion against the Mexican government’s attempt to secularize the country, the Cristeros War was a battle for religious freedom that was fought by an impassioned group of men and women who risked everything for family, faith and the future of their country.

For Greater Glory: Directed By Dean Wright

The Greater Glory brings the Cristeros War to the silver screen. Based on this long-hidden, true story, The Greater Glory chronicles the war and tells how General Enrique Gorostieta (Andy Garcia), a retired military man, transformed a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force that literally took on the Mexican army.

For Greater Glory: Directed By Dean Wright

Facing impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government, Gorostieta was at the center of a violent civil war in which over 90,000 people lost their lives. From feisty renegades to youthful idealists and ordinary citizens, the cause was taken up by a brave group of people who understood that their freedom and way of lives was at stake.
