NEW FEATURE-LENGTH DOCUMENTARY EXPLORES MODERN DEBATE OVER THE DOCTRINE OF HELL
OPENING IN VANCOUVER ON OCTOBER 12 AND EXPANDING TO TORONTO, MONTREAL, OTTAWA, CALGARY, EDMONTON, WINNIPEG, AND OTHER CITIES
Toronto, Ontario, September 4, 2012 – HELLBOUND?, a much-anticipated feature-length documentary that explores today’s highly contentious debate over the Christian doctrine of hell, is set to hit Canadian theaters in October 2012, hot on the heels of its September release stateside. HELLBOUND? will roll out in theatres throughout Canada, beginning on October 12 in Vancouver and Langley, followed by Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina on October 19, and expanding to Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa on October 26, with additional markets to follow.
Written and directed by award-winning Vancouver-based screenwriter Kevin Miller, the film also marks Miller’s directorial debut. His previous credits include the documentaries Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, with Ben Stein; Sex+Money, spOILed, With God On Our Side and several other projects.
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,” says 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 has no illusions about the controversy this film might cause. “No matter what you believe about hell, this film is definitely going to push your buttons. But I see that as a healthy thing. Rather than just stir people up though, I hope HELLBOUND? will provoke informed discussion and get people to take a second look at the impact their religious beliefs have on the world at large.”
Production on HELLBOUND? took place in more than two-dozen cities across the United States, Canada and Denmark throughout 2011. It was produced by Miller’s own production company, Kevin Miller XI Productions Inc. The film’s ethereal music is provided by three talented musicians from British Columbia: composer Marcus Zuhr, singer/songwriter Ari Neufeld and the band YUCA.
Tickets for HELLBOUND?, are available now at participating theatre box offices.
