One Filmmaker, 23 countries, one question—What is God?

In every corner of the world, there’s one question that can never be definitively answered, yet stirs up equal parts passion, curiosity, self-reflection & often wild imagination:  “What is God?” Filmmaker Peter Rodger explores this profound, age-old query in the provocative non-fiction feature “Oh My God”.  This visual odyssey travels the globe with a revealing lens examining the idea of God through the minds & eyes of various religions & cultures, everyday people, spiritual leaders & celebrities.  His goal:  to give the viewer the personal, visceral experience of some kind of reasonable, meaningful definition of one of the most used–some might say overused—words in most every language.  Rodger’s quest takes him from the United States to Africa, from the Middle East to the Far East, where such fundamental issues as:  “Did God create man or did man create God?”, “Is there one God for all religions?” and “If God exists, why does he allow so much suffering?” are explored in candid discussions with the various Christians, Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists & even atheists the filmmaker meets along the way.
