EXCLUSIVE: The first rule of Fight Church might be duking it out over the holiness of Fight Church, as seen in a new film from Oscar-winning director Daniel Junge (Saving Face, the forthcoming Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary) and Bryan Storkel (Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians). The feature-length docu tracks MMA-fighting pastors who blend bruising battle in the octagon with their teachings of The Bible, as well as those within the faith community who question such a union of Christianity and violence. Pic also features interviews with pro fighters Benson Henderson and Jon Jones and is produced by Eben Kostbar and Joseph McKelheer. With faith-based hit God’s Not Dead blazing up the box office, Fight Church is shopping theatrical and broadcast rights via The Film Sales Company and premieres this month at IFF Boston. Check out the trailer:
