Lost In Religion

Is there a god? Where is he? To whom does he reveal himself? And why doesn’t he reveal himself to me? Questions like these have always concerned mankind. The film “Lost in Religion” explores these questions in a humorous way by travelling around the world and meeting the most important people with distinct opinions regarding this issue.

Lost In Religion

After becoming a father, Marc Burth has a problem: Two children and no fitting religion for them. His father is Protestant, his mother is Jewish, and his sister a shaman. His wife’s dad is a Moslem; her mother, Catholic. Making the right choice for his children in this intersection of religions is a difficult job for the confused filmmaker! 

Searching for answers, Marc Burth meets people that have a relationship with God and some that consciously don’t. He talks to atheists, shamans, Jesuits, Jews, Moslems, heathens and many more. He wants to know if God exists and why religion should be important to his children. 

The film is a playful, crazy, slightly neurotic approach to the question many people find a hard nut to crack and humanity will always search answers for: Does God exist? And if yes, how many gods are there?
