Heartland 2011 Interview – Director Nathan Lang With God In The Box

In this interview I chat with Director Nathan Lang about his film God In The Box. In this film, Nathan Lang puts ordinary people in an enclosed space and asks them “What does God look like?” The result is a thought-provoking look at how the average person views religion, faith, and the unknown. Mixing with the video of patrons of the box, the film also discusses the issue with various religious leaders and anthropologists.

Hear Jason and I talk a lot more about this film on episode 56 of the podcast, but enjoy this short interview with the director, and check out his film at the website listed below.
