Synopsis

In 17th century Portugal, two Jesuit priests are shocked to hear news that their mentor has apostasised (renounced his faith) whilst travelling in Japan, a country where Catholicism was outlawed and existed only as an underground movement. Travelling there in an attempt to discover what happened and to spread the Gospel, the two men find their own faith severely tested, as they encounter appalling persecution and acts of violent torture from a group abhorring their beliefs. An intensely personal, spiritual film from director Martin Scorsese that interrogates the meaning of faith in profound, serious fashion, with themes that resonate across the modern world.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
