Garabandal: After the Visions
In 1961 four girls in Garabandal, a remote village in northern Spain, began claiming that they were seeing visions. These visions returned so frequently that visitors with movie cameras were able to film the girls in their trance states. Through these visions, the girls said, God was issuing a warning to the world: ' The cup is filling up, and if we do not change, a great chastisement will befall us '. The chief visionary of Garabandal, Conchita Gonzalez , has since emigrated to America and married. This film tells her story: the visions, the warning to the world, her attempts to hide from her growing fame, and her fears for her own children. If the events she is prophesying come to pass, she says it would be better for her children that they had never been born.
