Check Out Exclusive Poster for Sure To Be Controversial Afterlife Documentary, 'Hellbound?'

By Srimathi Sridhar and Nigel M. Smith | Indiewire June 19, 2012 at 11:47AM

The concept of hell: It's a topic that raises eyebrows and creates chatter, and it will now undoubtedly rise again to the surface thanks to the upcoming documentary, "Hellbound?." The film has a simple yet complex premise: To explore and challenge the notions of hell and the afterlife. Set last year in over two-dozen cities spanning the United States, Canada and Denmark, the film hopes to get to the bottom of this debate. The film features interviews with high profile authors, theologians, pastors, social commentators, musicians and exorcists. With "Hellbound?," award-winning screenwriter Kevin Miller is making his directorial debut, and Indiewire has the exclusive first look at the poster for the sure to be controversial film.  One of Area 23a's principals Kirt Eftekhar calls "Hellbound?" an "incredibly ambitious film" that will "provide moviegoers and communities with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to get involved in the hell debate." Miller, whose previous credits include "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed," with Ben Stein, "Sex+Money," "spOILed," and more, acknowledges the controversial nature of his documentary, saying it will "push your buttons." But he sees this tension as healthy and an opportunity to provide an informed discussion on the idea of hell, perhaps even leading some to reevaluate their own opinions. Produced by Kevin Miller XI Productions Inc., and distributed by Area 23a, the feature-length documentary will hit theaters across North America in September in the format of traditional theatrical runs and special event screenings.
