22 August 2017: Documentary-maker Philippe Brunel started the Projet Kisskissbankbank, (“L’abbé, le diable et les chercheurs”, Little Big Films) hoping to attract enough subscribers to plan about 6-7 documentary episodes about the subject matter of Rennes-le-Château (reported in La Dépêche du Midi on 2 September). An online appeal for donations quickly attracted the sum of over 5.000 Euros from 40 people. The unrelenting and voracious appetite about the mystery and treasure of Rennes-le-Château continues unabated in 2017 – despite the existence of evidence showing that Bérenger Saunière amassed over 200,000 francs between 1896-1915 from trafficking in masses – was summoned to a trial in 1910-1911 to explain his actions – was stripped of his priesthood – and planned to move to Lourdes, but was unable to do so because he could not sell his property (through the Banque Petitjean) to finance his plan.
