DENVER: Many people would jump at the chance to interview God. “An Interview with God” offers cinema audiences a look at what that experience might be like. Coming to U.S. movie theaters for a three-night event this August, “An Interview with God” will also offer viewers an engaging discussion following the featured content, based on the film’s inspiring themes.
Covering the war in Afghanistan provided journalist Paul Asher with some of the best stories of his young career. However, upon returning home, Asher struggles to deal with the after-effects of his experiences, a failing marriage and his dying faith. Not knowing where to turn, he dives deeply into the story of a lifetime.
Sitting down with a mysterious man claiming to be God over the course of three fateful days, Asher finds himself answering as many questions as he asks. While wrestling with what he knows and what he’s unsure of, he finds himself at the crossroads many come to in their lives.
Directed by Perry Lang and written by Ken Aguado, cast for “An Interview with God” includes Academy Award® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck”) and Brenton Thwaites (“Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”), along with Yael Grobglas (“Jane the Virgin”), Hill Harper (“Concussion”), and Charlbi Dean Kriek (“Black Lightning”). The film is produced by Fred Bernstein of Astute Films and Aguado, and co-produced by Dominique Telson, Harrison Powell, Lisa M. Jean and Claudine Marrotte. Executive producers are Rick Jackson and Paul Kurta.
“Fathom is pleased to be partnering with Giving Films to bring this poignant feature to movie theaters nationwide,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “We are committed to continue offering unique content that fosters a community experience and joins people together through explorations of their own personal beliefs.”
“Many of us have questions around life and faith, although we might be afraid to admit we have them. We are really excited to see what conversations this film sparks!” VP of Development for Giving Films Harrison Powell said.
