The Running Preacher (Religion on the Run)

On the run from the authorities that have just closed down his ‘illegal’ house-church in Beijing, we follow an evangelical charismatic Christian preacher as he tours the country spreading the word of God. From believers explaining how they have less religious freedoms now than during the Cultural Revolution to sermons about politics and religion that rile against Hu Jintao and the Communist Party, and from scenes of mass conversions to hearing accounts of Christians being imprisoned and beaten, we learn how religion continues to be suppressed in China. This film is authored by the Running Preacher.
