-A film series by Cathrine Marchen Asmussen.

Year: 2018 (1-4) and 2020 (5-6)

Format: Streaming

The first 6 films are available.


12 children and 12 different faiths. They might all seem very different, but in fact our protagonists have a whole lot in common through their faiths. They share the feeling of being connected to something bigger than themselves; whether they hug trees, greet the angels on their shoulders, imagine life after death or the cure of God. The films about Mira, Natalie, Asmir and Lukas are the first 4 films out of 12, while we follow Deenpal and Leah in film 5 and 6. The stories depict religion as the children themselves experience it; something that brings them security and joy, excitment and mystery, as well as some quite specific tools to handle everyday life.


”It’s just like having a teddy bear that you really love and that have been with you since you were born. My faith is somehow my teddy bear” – Natalie, 11 years old.

Director, Cathrine Marchen Asmussen is self-taught. She often photographs her films herself. Her first independent documentary GHETTOPRINSESSE won the Grand Prix at the Odense Film Festival in 2000, as well as the award for best film for children and young people at the TV festival the same year. Cathrine tells her stories in a tight and poetic way. She is always loyal to her characters and stay true to their POV. The main characters are often people slightly stigmatized – whether they are children or adults. The My Faith series is Cathrine’s seventh documentary production.
