Hindu statesman Rajan Zed prominently appears in documentary on religion in America
New documentary on religion in America prominently showcases Hindu statesman Zed.
This documentary, which was in the 2012 official selection of International Festival of Cinema and Religion, “captures the raw emotions over religious differences as members of various faiths struggle to use the political process to advance their own religious agendas”.
The scene of protested historic first Hindu prayer in the 218 years history of the United States Senate read by Rajan Zed is shown in this 87-minutes long film, alongside interviews of protesters and others about their reactions to Hindu prayer in the Senate, besides Zed.
Mike Allen of Playbook Politico reportedly calls the film, directed by Bryan Hall and Jack Donaldson, a “Must see.” Presented by Foundation for Religious Diplomacy and Living Biography and rated PG, its executive producers are Randall Paul, John Carosella and W. Wilder Knight II.
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, has urged world filmmakers to come up with films giving deeper, broader, and more inclusive understanding of religion as religion is a complex component of human life and is a highly powerful force in human society.
