Sex + Religion
Directed by: Jason Charters, Liam Romalis, Robert Sandler
Featuring: Laurie Brown
Produced by: Riddle Films and Creative Anarchy in association with VisionTV
Distributed by: Espresso Media
What is the relationship between religion and sexuality? Where does sex fit into the pursuit of divine enlightenment? Is it an integral part of who we are or is it a blind biological drive that distracts us from realizing our highest spiritual goals? In a world in which we are bombarded with sexual messages, can we unite our sexual desires with our divine purpose?
This thirteen-part series looks at stories of people trying to answer those questions. It speaks to experts both inside and outside the fold: rabbis, priests, sex workers, philosophers and gurus, all of whom shed some much-needed light on the relationship between sex and religion.
Produced by Riddle Films and Creative Anarchy in association with VisionTV and HiFiHDTV, with the participation of the Canadian Media Fund and The Rogers Documentary Fund.
Winner, Gold Remi Award, Best Documentary Series, 2011 Houston WorldFest.
