“Fight Church” follows several pastors and fighters in a quest to reconcile their faith with a sport that some consider violent and barbaric. Faith is tried and questions are raised. Can you really love your neighbor as yourself and then punch him in the face?
Academy Award-winning director Daniel Junge (“Saving Face”) and director Bryan Storkel (“Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians”) team up with producers Eben Kostbar and Joseph McKelheer (“The Hammer”) for a feature documentary about the confluence of Christianity and mixed martial arts, including ministries which train fighters. Director Daniel Junge will be present for a post screening discussion.
“This is compelling stuff. It’s smart, non-judgmental, funny, dismaying, and provocative.” – Lisa Kennedy, The Denver Post
