Valentina Pedicini — Italy — 2019 — 93'

An isolated monastery in the Italian hills. A kung fu master. A community of Christian monks, with a touch of Asian disciplines. A single faith: to fight evil in the name of the Father. For twenty years, the Warrior Monks, former martial arts champions, have been preparing for a “higher” war, amid night-time prayers and grueling training sessions. A poetic, emotional journey in an unknown world. What is one willing to lose, in order to win in the name of faith?
