Portræt af Gud

Jon Bang Carlsen, Denmark, 2001

71 min.DK/Documentary

In the style of a private detective Jon Bang Carlsen sets off to track down the most wanted person of our time, i.e. God. The director has trouble finding faith in his own heart and seeks it in his immediate surroundings instead, initially in the framework of his house on the coast of Africa where he has settled with his two young sons, and then in the midst of South African society. He comes closest on his visits to the huge Pollsmoor penitentiary, Cape Town, where the inmates find solace in religion. Is there any room for humour in a portrait of God? Jon Bang Carlsen certainly finds room, just as according to the film there is room for doubt in God's heart.
