Returned to This received two awards at the San Antonio Horrific Film Fest. One for Best Documentary and The Audience Choice Award. Returned to This was also an official selection at the San Antonio Film Festival in 2017. It remains unreleased for public viewing.

A small fraction of the film can be seen here in memory of Derek Rivers.


The screenplay is based on characters from the award-winning series, The Assassination Race by Ronnie Stich. The author wrote the screenplay centered around the embattled Father Martin Bonaparte. She was heavily inspired to delve deeper into Father Bonaparte's struggles after watching a Maldito Films production. The artistic collaboration between Maldito Films/Amistad Media and Ronnie Stich will help bring to life a dark but powerfully human story about a priest that is not at all what he seems.
