MOST FAITH-BASED FILMS AREN’T BAD... THEY ARE TOXIC.
They tend to give shallow answers to life’s incredibly complex problems, substituting the silver screen for a pulpit as they try to pass religious propaganda for entertainment.
Be Not Afraid! will lift your spirits without insulting your IQ.
In this first-of-it’s-kind movie, writer/director Taylor Gahm makes room in the faith-based genre with an unrated, irreverent exploration of faith, inadequacy and doubt. (NSFW)
Challenging the religious status quo instead of peddling canned answers, Gahm paints a whimsically messy picture of faith with juvenile humor, believable characters and a generous orthodoxy.
Inspired by his TED talk, Be Not Afraid! invites audiences into a world where angels are just as flawed as the humans they’re sent to serve, and entertains the idea of a God thrilled more with humans discovering their True Selves than just trying to behave.
