Does hell exist? This age-old question will be explored anew by Hellbound? – a feature-length documentary opening in theatres across Canada on October 12.
Written and directed by Vancouver-based screenwriter Kevin Miller, the film features authors, theologians, pastors, pundits, musicians, exorcists and social commentators who have weighed in on the Christian doctrine of hell.
Miller says Hellbound? is his attempt to get to the heart of the current debate about hell and determine what its implications are for both Christians and observers.
“No matter what you believe about hell, this film is definitely going to push your buttons,” says Miller in a press statement. “But I see that as a healthy thing.” His hope is that Hellbound? “will provoke informed discussion and get people to take a second look at the impact religious beliefs have on the world at large.”
The film, Miller’s directorial debut, was shot in more than two dozen cities across Canada, the U.S. and Denmark. His writing credits include the documentaries spOILed, a documentary about negative attitudes towards fossil fuels, and Sex+Money, a documentary which delves into why the sexual exploitation of children is “the second-fastest growing form of organized crime in America.”
