Fight Church trailer: Can you love your neighbor, and knee his face?

Friday, April 04, 2014

Academy Award Winning Director Daniel Junge and director Bryan Storkel team up with producers Eben Kostbar and Joseph McKelheer (The Hammer) for a feature documentary about the confluence of Christianity and mixed martial arts.

Fight Church premieres April 24 at the Independent Film Festival of Boston. The startling trailer includes the following:
“When Preston came up with the idea of having a fight club in the church, it was an easy thing to say yes to.”
“Tough guys need Jesus, too.”
“We’ll just be a couple of God-fearing men punching each other in the head.”
“Jesus never tapped out.”
“Can you love your neighbor as much as yourself and then knee him in the face as hard as you can?”

With appearances by Jon Jones and Benson Henderson.
