My Faith – The Power of Blood – Witch

Cathrine Marchen Asmussen, Denmark, 2018

14 min.DK/DocumentaryChildren''s films

12 children and 12 different faiths. They might all seem very different, but in fact our protagonists have a whole lot in common through their faiths. Amongst other things they share the feeling of being connected to something bigger than themselves; whether they hug trees, greet the angels on their shoulders, imagine life after death or the cure of God. The films about Mira, Natalie, Asmir and Lukas are the first 4 films out of 12. The stories depict religion as the children themselves experience it; something that brings them security and joy, excitment and mystery, as well as some quite specific tools to handle everyday life.

”It’s just like having a teddy bear that you really love and that have been with you since you were born. My faith is somehow my teddy bear” – Natalie, 11 years old
