Mexico's Arriaga Brings Religious-Themed 'Words with Gods' to Venice
Words with Gods Trailer (El reino del exceso)
A wave of spirituality washed over the Venice Film Festival this weekend with the out-of-competition screening of "Words with Gods," a series of religious-themed short films directed by Mexico's Guillermo Arriaga and eight other filmmakers, including Spain's Alex de la Iglesia and Argentine-born Brazilian Hector Babenco.
"It doesn't deal with religions so much as human beings," Arriaga, who also produced the project, said here of his short, "La Sangre de Dios" (Blood of God).
"The goal of the film is to spark a dialogue so we can understand ourselves better and become better human beings," he added.
"Words with Gods" consists of nine short films that take the movie-goer from the Australian desert to Iranian Kurdistan and from boisterous Mumbai to tsunami-battered Japan.
