Guillermo Arriaga's faith-themed anthology film "Words with Gods," with an original song by Peter Gabriel and shaped into its current structure by Nobel prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa, has a first trailer. Watch below.
The likes of Bahman Ghobadi, Mira Nair and Amos Ghitai directed segments for the film, along with other international renowned filmmakers.
Here's the official synopsis:
In Words with Gods, each director recounts a narrative centered around human fragility, as well as environmental and cultural crises involving specific religions with which each has a personal relationship; including early Aboriginal Spirituality, Umbanda, Buddhism, the Abrahamic faiths, Hinduism, and Atheism. An animated sequence by Mexican animator Maribel Martinez is woven through each of the film segments, with each segment narratively connected as a feature length film. Words with Gods is ultimately the first part of the Arriaga-helmed Heartbeat of the World feature film series, which will include Encounters, a look at sexual identity (currently in pre-production), Into the Bloodstream, an exploration into drugs; and Polis, an examination of politics (with the latter two in development).
The film will be released both in its feature length capacity, and as stand-alone films from each acclaimed director.
