In Faith, a fanatically devout Catholic woman (the sister of the main character in Love) is tested when her husband, a paraplegic Egyptian-born Muslim, returns unexpectedly after a two-year absence and gradually begins to confront her rigid religious beliefs. (113 mins., HDCAM)

Originally conceived as a long feature, his recent Paradise Trilogy is inspired by Austrian playwright Ödön von Horváth’s 1932 work Faith, Hope, and Charity and explores the lives of three women from one family through interconnected stories. If you’ve seen past Seidl films such as Dog Days (2001) or Jesus, You Know (2003), you know he is no stranger to provocation, or controversy.
