“Do We Need Religion?”
Web Series & Extended Scenes: http://youtube.com/believersdoc
These days it seems that nothing is as polarizing and controversial as religious belief. Everywhere one goes it seems that people are asking the question: Do we even need religion? Is it limiting our understanding? What kind of world is being produced by these faith systems? Regardless of your answers to these questions, it is hard to deny that worship still plays an important role in many people’s lives and many people simply do not understand where others are coming from.
Believers is a unique exploration of those questions related to faith by focusing the lens on five of the world’s belief systems, Agnosticism, and the new Atheism.
“I decided to find people to talk to who were reasonable, rational and intelligent, and could respond to my questions without getting angry or offended.”
The film follows Sacha Sewhdat’s personal journey towards understanding as he searches for the value of religion in modern society. With honesty and objectivity Sacha explores what it means to believe in a higher power or what it would mean to let those beliefs go.
“In the end, it’s shown me that there’s a lot to know and if I want to be part of this dialogue, and be helpful, I need to give everyone a fair shake.”
This documentary will both inform and challenge what you know about religion in the 21st Century.
