SYNOPSIS

A visually striking voyage into the fascinating inner workings of a Catholic martial arts monastery in rural Italy.

Valentina Pedicini’s absorbing documentary invites the viewer inside the world of the Warriors of Light, whose beliefs and rituals blend Shaolin teachings with devout Catholicism. More than a decade in production, the film explores the strange power dynamics at play within the group and the demanding physical regime they undertake each day. Faith is an immersive and often unsettling look at a collection of people drawn together by their dedication to a way of life that shuts out all others.
