At a time when religious hatreds dominate the world’s headlines, this film, shot by more than 40 filmmaking teams, explores faith as primary human experience, and how people turn to ritual and prayer to navigate the milestones and crises of private life. Director Thomas Lennon - nominated three times for an Academy Award, winning in 2007 - commissioned or sourced footage from top independent filmmakers from more than 25 countries and a wide range of religious traditions.
