„Words with Gods“ features nine powerful stories of faith, created by some of the world’s most celebrated filmmakers. A dramatic spectrum of beliefs are represented, with each filmmaker speaking about the one closest to the culture they depict in their story: Warwick Thornton deals with Aboriginal Spirituality, Héctor Babenco with Umbanda, Mira Nair with Hinduism, Hideo Nakata with Shinto Buddhism, Amos Gitai with Judaism, Álex de la Iglesia with Catholicism, Emir Kusturica with Orthodox Christianity, Bahman Ghobadi with Islam and Guillermo Arriaga with Atheism. The film is a panoramic global story that confronts birth & death, fateful choices and faith lost & found.
„Words with Gods“ is presented by the International Research Center „Interweaving Performance Cultures“ as a supplement to one of its main research areas "Performance in relation to religion and spirituality. " The movie will be shown as part of the Babylon's Cine En Español series and in cooperation with the Instituto Cervantes Berlin.
Afterwards, there will be a roundtable discussion between Christel Weiler, Eric Haußmann and Torsten Jost.
