“The thing that attracted me to this project in the first place was the idea of Christianity and fighting, two things that seemingly don’t fit, being paired together.”
This quote comes from director Bryan Storkel regarding his project “Fight Church.” This film offers an intriguing synopsis:
Fight Church follows several cage fighting pastors in a quest to reconcile their faith with a sport that many consider violent and barbaric.
Can you really love your neighbor as yourself and then, at the same time, knee him in the face as hard as you can?
Giving a voice to both sides of the argument, Academy Award® Winning director Daniel Junge and Bryan Storkel allow audiences to reach their own conclusions about these God-fearing men who beat the holy hell out of each other… because Jesus never tapped out.
So basically… this film is about skilled Christians beating each other down, and finding affirmation from their faith in doing so… while other Christians cheer it on.
Imagine if this was how conflict was worked out in the church.
