HELLBOUND?, a feature-length documentary filmed partially in Abbotsford by local director Kevin Miller, will hit the big screens in October.
The movie explores the contentious debate over the Christian doctrine of hell. Beginning on Oct.12, the film will be shown in Vancouver and Langley, followed by Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina on Oct. 19, and expanding to Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa on Oct. 26.
Written and directed by Miller, the film also marks his directorial debut.
HELLBOUND? features interviews with an eclectic group of authors, theologians, pastors, social commentators, musicians, exorcists and other high profile participants in the debate.
“Throughout history, Christians have disagreed about pretty much everything,” said Miller. “With every debate, particular doctrines become a litmus test to determine insiders and outsiders. That’s certainly the case right now regarding the doctrine of hell. HELLBOUND? is my attempt to get to the bottom of the current debate, to find out why challenges to the traditional fire and brimstone view are so contentious and to discover the implications of this dispute for Christians as well as those watching from a distance.”
Miller knows his film will cause controversy.
“No matter what you believe about hell, this film is definitely going to push your buttons,” he said
He hopes the movie will provoke informed discussion and get people to take a second look at the impact their religious beliefs have on the world at large.
