In an idyllic setting in the heart of Italy, a sect of martial arts fighters have been preparing to save humanity on the day of the Apocalypse. Has their time arrived? In the late 1990's, a Kung Fu master decided to sacrifice body and soul to fight the Devil that would soon reign on earth. Two decades later, Faith takes us on a poetic and visceral journey into his faith and that of his disciples. A surreal world where warriors sacrifice their bodies through exhausting training to prepare for the final war against evil. A radical look, in black and white, at the devotion that bares, through punches, the human need to believe in a higher force.

"Faith" is as disciplined and intriguingly opaque as the men and women it studies, attempting to unlock the nature of the group through mesmeric observation of routine and ritual.

— Guy Lodge, Variety

Eye-opening portrait of the isolated Italian religious sect Warriors Of Light

— Amber Wilkinson, Screen Daily

The Warriors of Light are blatantly absurd, many of the rituals which are typical of our own lives are no more set in stone than those of the sect, having only acquired meaning through their being shared, socially acceptable conventions.

— Davide Abbatescianni, Cineuropa
