passion meets art

"No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight of the soul." - Ingmar Bergman

We are passionate about our Catholic Faith; in it we see the fullness of truth, goodness, and beauty.

We also are students of art; in it we see the potential to uplift and revive the human spirit.

This is the moment when passion meets art.
