Light and Mourning

Top of page

Facing a major crisis in Quebec as in the rest of the Western world, has the Catholic Church becomes a ghost ship in search of a crew? Director Nicola Zavaglia reflects on this consequential issue with a documentary that brings you behind the closed doors of Catholicism. Featuring interviews with member of the Quebec and French clergy, as well as striking images shot in Rome and Calabria, Light and Mourning goes back to the roots of christian belief in an attempt to explain the dramatic decline of the once-powerful Church in modern society. Two thousand years after Jesus, can the Catholic religion hope to flourish once again?
