Frustrated with religious turmoil, fanaticism and fundamentalism, filmmaker Peter Rodger set out on a global quest to understand why the concept of God has become politicized. In his stunningly, beautiful documentary film OH MY GOD? (OMG Movie Inc.), Rabbis, Christian Fundamentalists, Catholic Priests, Buddhist Llamas, Hindu Swamis, Zen Masters, Muslim radicals, Shamans and ordinary people across the globe share their unique perspectives and understanding of God, along with several celebrities including Hugh Jackman, Seal, Ringo Starr, Sir Bob Geldof, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, David Copperfield, Dr. John F. Demartini and Jack Thompson. The film debuts nationally this November. Premiering at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles on November 13th . OH MY GOD? is set amongst beautiful backdrops around the world, filmed in 23 countries over three years from the 9th ward of New Orleans to the Guatemalan Jungle, to the Himalayan region of Ladahk, Rodger searches for the common thread in our diverse humanity and reveals that which often divides us can also unite us. The film features inviting faces and personalities that are a touching reminder of the melting pot that we call humanity and the mystery that we have given many names.

The film features inviting faces and personalities that are a touching reminder of the melting pot that we call humanity and the mystery that we have given many names. Controversial, hopeful, heartwarming and sometimes shocking Rodger's film reveals the diverse beliefs with which we were raised, and subscribe to solely because we are told to. He questions why we often blindly "believe" without direct experience or personal introspection. "I was fed up with the childish schoolyard mentality that permeates this world - I call it the "My God Is Greater Than Your God" syndrome - where you have grown men flying airplanes into buildings shouting "God is Great" - where you have the leader of the free world telling the BBC in 2003 that he invaded Iraq because God told him to -- None of these concepts made any sense to me," states Rodger, "So I decided to go around the world and ask people what they think." Rodger produced, directed, wrote and shot the film with an incognito skeleton crew consisting of one other - Patrick Ellis, a line producer tripling as sound man and B camera operator. Alexander van Bubenheim, a composer, also traveled on part of the shoot collecting sounds and incorporating them into music that binds the film together, and surprises us at the same time resulting in an extraordinary, original soundtrack. One of the most poignant moments in the film is when Rabbi Menachem Froman (an Orthodox Jew) and Ibrahim Abu El-Hawa (a Muslim community leader and peace advocate) embrace. The two men are active in an organization that encourages dialogue among Jews, Christians and Muslims. "God is in the space between us," poignantly shares Rabbi Froman. "My visit to the holy land surprised me the most," shares Rodger "There is a desire for peace from both the Palestinians and the Israelis. It is the politicians that are messing the situation up. It is not a conflict of religion - it is a conflict of Land, Politics and EMOTION." Rodger's main goal is for viewers to come away with a feeling of having an amazing journey; an adventure seeing places they would never normally see; hearing music that inspires and words that educate. "If only we could open our hearts for tolerance and peace which is what every single religion preaches, then we might have a chance. If I can touch one heart with this film than I have succeeded." OH MY GOD? debuted at the Jerusalem Film Festival last month and has recently been accepted to several film festivals including Warsaw International Film Festival, Tel Aviv Spirit Awards, The Mill Valley Film Festival, Cine-World Film Festival, Sarasota, Sun Valley Spiritual Film Festival and the UK Jewish Film Festival. - www.omgmovie.comFor Your Listening Pleasure all the radio shows available on The 'X' Zone Broadcast Network with our compliments, visit - <a href="https://www.spreaker.com/user/xzoneradiotv" rel="noopene
