Gospa is a 1995 religious drama starring Martin Sheen and Morgan Fairchild about events surrounding pilgrimages to a small village in Herzegovina where six school children claim Lady (Croatian: Gospa) appeared in 1981 (see Our Lady of Međugorje). The movie highlights Communists preying on Catholics and Croats who suffer at the hands of authorities. Martin Sheen plays Franciscan priest Jozo Zovko, who was tortured and tried for treason by the Yugoslav government for refusing to betray his people. The film won the Golden Gate of Pula (audience award for best film as voted by festival audiences) at the 42nd Pula Film Festival, and Vjesnik award Jelen.
