The Bride behind the Altar


A documentary by Silvia Luzi & Luca Bellino - 52'/2015

A letter to the Pope, twenty-six women names and a veiled threat: ''each of us has a big love affair with a priest." Priests secret relationships are an issue that Vatican cannot cope, because they include two of the most taboo subjects: mandatory celibacy and the birth of love children. The documentary get the testimony of the authors of the letter to the Pope, the words of the defrocked priests, and the stories of "the sons of silence".
