Most people would jump at the chance to interview God. What would you ask?

“Many of us have questions around life and faith, although we might be afraid to admit we have them. We are really excited to see what conversations this film sparks!” said Harrison Powell, VP of Development for Giving Films.
Covering the war in Afghanistan provided journalist Paul Asher with some of the best stories of his young career. But that endeavor ends up costing him so much more than he ever could have anticipated. Upon returning home, Paul struggles to deal with the after-effects of his experiences, a failing marriage, and his dying faith. Not knowing where to turn, Paul dives deeply into the story of a lifetime—an interview with a mysterious man claiming to be God.
What does an inquisitive reporter ask God? What would you ask?
Sitting down with this mysterious man over the course of three fateful days, Paul finds himself answering as many questions as he asks. While wrestling with what he knows and what he’s unsure of, Paul finds himself at the crossroads we all come to in our lives: Who do we say God is?
Directed by Perry Lang and written by Ken Aguado, cast for AN INTERVIEW WITH GOD includes Academy Award® nominee David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck) and Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales), along with Yael Grobglas (Jane the Virgin), Hill Harper (Concussion), and Charlbi Dean Kriek (The Other).
At the movie’s conclusion, viewers will experience an engaging panel discussion based on the film’s inspiring themes featuring nationally syndicated radio host, Eric Metaxas, faith & culture writer Jonathan Merritt and Inside Edition correspondent, Megan Alexander.
