Filmmaker Stephen Marshall's thoughts as he began working on a film about religious fundamentalism included: war; natural disasters; the destruction of entire cities; the deaths of millions of people. These are the signs of imminent salvation for Christians and Muslims around the world. Forty-four percent of American Christians claim to be confident that Jesus is going to return to Earth for his Judgment in the next 50 years. But when Marshall decided to focus not on global movements but on two zealous men, Khalid Kelly and Aaron Taylor, his film changed. There was still plenty of damnation and paranoia, but reconciliation began to seem possible. Marshall interviews Kelly and Taylor about their beliefs, then persuades them to sit down and talk things over. Did we mention that Kelly is a Muslim and Taylor is a Christian? HOLY WARS will surprise you, and maybe even inspire you. –B.B.
