Quiet Faith

By David Williams

From award-winning documentary theatre maker David Williams (Smurf in Wanderland, Grace Under Pressure, The Table of Knowledge), comes a surprising journey into the world of the quietly, progressively faithful.

29 May – 30 May

The place of Christian faith in Australian politics is often linked to conservatism and intolerance. Many members of the current Federal Government profess deep Christian beliefs and groups such as the Australian Christian Lobby loudly intervene in public policy debates.

Yet, new faith-based social movements such as Love Makes A Way, actively campaign against government policies. The spectacle of religious leaders undertaking non-violent acts of civil disobedience, including prayer vigils in the offices of Christian politicians, has captured the imaginations of many.

Generated from hours of interviews with Christian Australians, Quiet Faith offers a beautiful, immersive and heartfelt portrait of the very different ways that faith can underpin civic life.


Quiet Faith is hallowed ground, a little bit like going to church, and a powerful voice for the faithful who actually practice what they preach.  Whether you are a full-blown atheist, one of the flock, or a complete hypocrite, you will not leave the same as you entered.”  - The Barefoot Review

“Of perhaps a hundred shows across the country watched by this critic this year, a standout would have to be David Williams’s Quiet Faith” -  The Guardian
