Miami, April 14 (IANS/EFE) Actor Andy Garcia has said it was wonderful to be able to shoot his upcoming film, “For Greater Glory”, amid Mexico’s historical landmarks.

The feature film, to premiere in the US June 1, is set in the 1926-29 Cristero War that broke out following an uprising of religious orders against anti-clerical measures imposed by the Mexican government.

Garcia, who is in Miami promoting the movie, said he plays Gen. Enrique Gorostieta Velarde, who, despite being an atheist, decides to organise the rebels in their religious war against the state and finally embraces the Christian faith.

“The film director (Dean Wright) gave me a book on the history of the Cristeros and right away I was hooked,” the actor told EFE.
