Defender of the Faith

90min, HD

Feature Documentary, 2019

In 2013 Pope Benedict XVI resigned. It was the first time in 600 years that a Pope had abdicated. It was the most visible sign yet that the Church was in crisis.

DEFENDER OF THE FAITH tells the story of a man who has dedicated his life to preserving the Church but instead led it into its greatest crisis: Joseph Ratzinger, the German Pope Benedict XVI. The documentary analyses the ideological, cultural and organizational failings of an institution that claims to proclaim the absolute truth as it struggles to come to terms with modern democratic society that has accepted diversity and pluralism as fundamental rights.
