China’s Leap of Faith

Buddhism around the World Media Movies

Veteran Canadian film-makers Robin Benger and Christopher Sumpton, of Cogent/Benger Productions, have produced an excellent two-part documentary entitled China’s Leap of Faith, about that country’s amazing resurgence of religious practice in the face of Communist atheism.

Part One: The Gods Come Home deals with Buddhism and other traditional Chinese faiths.

Part Two: The Bamboo Cross deals with Chinese Christianity.

The films are each one hour in length, and are available separately on DVD. They also air occasionally on VisionTV, and were recently screened at Vancouver’s New Asia Film Festival.
