Believing is Seeing

Believing is Seeing

Duration: 07:59

Our secular scientific age does not tolerate the unexplained, or unexplainable. The existence of magic or miracles is largely ridiculed and rejected. To have faith is to fundamentally believe in something without logical proof. But in 21st century Britain, in spite of the material and the medical, an ancient belief in miracles survives. For many millions of individuals, their belief in miracles is the foundation of their religious confidence. Taking a poetic approach, this film reflects on the spirit of the human ability of believers, to embrace, in the face of all empirical evidence, the impossible.
