“God in the Box” Documentary Film Showing
Followed by a Q&A, Discussion and Reception with Director Nathan Lang
On Sunday, December 2 at 7pm, all are invited to a free program featuring a showing of the documentary “God in the Box” along with Q&A, discussion and a reception with the movie’s director Nathan Lang. Event will take place at the Maryville University Auditorium and is presented by the Maryville University’s Office of Campus Ministry and Community Service and the Maryville University Jewish Student Union. Free and open to the public.
“God in the Box” is a documentary film which explores the mystery and controversy behind what God looks like and means to us as Americans in the 21st century. In the midst of today’s fractured and confusing claims on God, the film asserts two basics questions: What does God mean to you? What does God look like to you?
The filmmakers embark on a cross-country journey with their small, mobile studio (and main character), The Box. They invite people to step inside and share what they see in their mind’s eye, and if possible, draw what God looks like to them. Along their journey, the filmmakers set The Box up on iconic street corners and diverse locations across America.
