The recovery of a silent feature film from 1924, banned by the Italian fascism, reveals the path of the Waldensians, a medieval heretic movement that became the world’s first protestant church.
During the last decades, the Waldensians had struggled the Vatican around issues like gay marriage and euthanasia.
The documentary is a mirror’s game between reality and representation, between the medieval Waldensians and actual communities with different languages in Italy, Argentina, Uruguay and the United States, wondering why the waldensian heresy has resisted for more than eight centuries.
