Documental Pedro Arrupe 2001 (5/5)

November 14, 2007, marked the 100th anniversary of Pedro Arrupe's birth. Pedro Arrupe, born in Spain, worked in Japan as a Jesuit, making significant contributions. He was later elected the General of the Society of Jesus. Jesuits and their institutions around the world celebrated the event in various ways.

Here is a series of powerpoint slideshows, prepared by Jayaraj, an Indian Jesuit, on the life of Arrupe.

Here is a 2001 Spanish production on Pedro Arrupe, in five parts. Looks like the presentation was televised by TVE 2 in Spain.

Note the program is in Spanish, and the video is occasionally less than ideal, though watchable. As a professional production, this moves quickly touching upon only the major events in Arrupe's life.
