the title suggests, the main objective of this film is
to `expose theology,´ or more specifically, to expose
the ways in which theology has permanently deformed our
society, and continues to infringe on our liberties and threaten our lives to this day.
find ourselves at a stage in history where competing theologies
are so over-developed and wide-spread
as to be trapped in a deadly, and apparently irreversible,
`gridlock.´ Regardless of their shrewd denials,
none of the warring factions have any intention of compromising
their `missions´ of world domination and thus -
to quote one of the characters in the film - "Every
person alive today, regardless of philosophy and disposition,
has billions of strangers obligated to kill him - either
for what he is, or isn´t."
matter what history or personal experience teaches these
people, and no matter how peaceful and loving they may
want to become, the vast majority are always too
afraid to challenge the obligations of their age-old and,
thus, larger-than-life institutions. If religion ever
possessed any advantages for mankind, these have long
since been outweighed by its dangers and it is clear that
our only chance for a peaceful future lie in a blanket
abandonment of these disturbing institutions.
there are millions of people around the world who are
fully aware of this phenomenon, we remain a relatively
small and silent minority which is still considered taboo
amongst the mainstream.
people simply find it hard to imagine why, and how, religion
could have developed this far if it is indeed merely a
product of human fancy - rather than of divine inspiration.
Religion has become so entrenched in our society that
few people can imagine the world without it and they therefore
tolerate its existence out of a sense of awe and mystery,
even if they don´t actively participate themselves.
this film will offer a hypothesis for how religion could
have evolved this far without having any supernatural
origins, and thus remove the mystique that shrouds its
true nature. Hopefully, this will help people
see through the claims of clergymen and theologians and
enable them to reconsider, and perhaps even revert to,
their original lifestyles of freedom and indulgence.
that the subject of theology is too shrouded in ancient
layers of blood, myth and taboo to be able to be analyzed
and discussed objectively, we´ve chosen to use a
carefully crafted metaphorical fairytale - inspired by
Nietzsche´s Thus Spake Zarathustra, the
writings of the Marquis de Sade, Hieronymus Bosch´s
Garden of Earthly Delights, etc. Hopefully, by
virtue of its freshness, our story will be able to elude
peoples' biases and allow for genuine and sincere re-evaluation.
