Photos: Cabrini movie takes over Delaware Park for overnight filming

From the A collection of visual stories from Western New York: 2021 series

With “People’s Choice Award” winning director Alejandro Monteverde and Academy Award and BAFTA Award-winning producer Jonathan Sanger ("Marshall," "The Elephant Man") at the helm, the yet-to-be titled Mother Cabrini $30 million film is being shot in Buffalo that is set in the 19th century about the real life Frances Xavier Cabrini, an Italian immigrant and saint. The film stars Christiana Dell’Anna, Montserrat Espadalé, Romana Maggiora Vergano, David Morse, Patch Darragh, John Lithgow, Jeremy Bobb, Virginia Bocelli, Andrew Polk and Giampiero Judica.

Cast and crew took over several acres of green space in Delaware Park to produce a period 1800s carnival scene, with hundreds of extra background actors, horses and smoking gaslights. Without giving any spoilers, international opera star Rolando Villazón appears in the scene with a band performing with popular instruments during the period.
