Oh My God, the movie

This November director Peter Rodger will debut "Oh My God," a documentary film of his global quest for God. Filmed in 23 countries, from Guatemalan jungles to the mountains of Ladakh, Rodger's film includes interviews with Catholic Priests, Rabbis, Christian Fundamentalists, Hindu Swamis, Zen Masters, Muslim radicals, and Buddhist Lamas, to name a few, not to mention a host of high profile celebrities. Frustrated with the religious politicization of God, Rodger set out on a three year journey to discover who and what God is:

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 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, so I decided to go around the world and ask people what they think.

Though Rodger's film cannot hope to capture the meaning of God in 93 minutes, it's sure to offer plenty of food for thought, and--judging from the trailer--an abundance of breathtaking imagery.
