Watch as many films that fit this challenge's theme as you can.
It's the first time we're having this challenge and in comparison with other challenges it allows for a high degree of freedom. The theme should feature in the film as a central element. This includes faith, religion & clerics (like The Passion of Joan of Arc or Winter Light), sects (like Stations of the Cross), cults (like The Master), (accusations of) witchcraft & sorcery (like Witchhammer or Yeelen) and Folk Horror movies (like The Wicker Man). Participants are asked to critically question whether an entry actually fits the spirit of the challenge - a monk character or a scene in a church by itself is not sufficient.
- Each feature film (over 40 minutes) counts as one entry.
- A total of 80 minutes of short films or miniseries/TV episodes count as one entry.
- Rewatches are allowed and good for the soul.
- English Title (year, Country) or English title/Original Title (year, Country) is the preferred format.
- Do not edit your posts to add new watches, just create a new one.
- Try to give an indication of how much you liked/disliked your watchings (reviews, comments, ratings,...)
- Providing IMDb links would be great as I intend to create Stats for the challenge (and also we will come up with a neat reference list for the next time)
Challenge runs from May 1st, 2022 - May 31st, 2022 in your local time zone
