Directed by: Jean-Louis Schuller

The Village Church paints the portrait of a village priest who moves the debate about the separation of Church and State away from the political arena and into the parish pub. Over a glass of beer, tradition and faith come up against modernity and scepticism. “Are we what we used to be?” the priest asks during mass. What is the future of the Catholic Church? The priest, who no longer has all the answers, doesn’t just ask these questions but he lives them with his parishioners.
