This year’s canonization of Father Serra may help filmmaker Doug Mueller. Mueller (TAT, 2003) is seeking support to complete a documentary film on the restoration and seismic retrofit of the Carmel Mission Basilica. Father Serra founded the mission and is buried there.
“I’m hoping to get it funded so it can be finished by September,” Mueller said. “There’s a big incentive now, before Father Serra is sainted and people flock to the mission.”
According to the Carmel Mission Foundation, which hired Mueller, an important part of the basilica’s restoration is his record of the project. The film examines the daily construction work over a six-month period and highlights the most complex tasks as they change over time.
