A God by any other name

PRAY is an exploration of conversations with God. By being present in prayer, in places most of us don't have access to, Lars Petter Gallefoss has created a universal story about the foundation of all religion. Beautifully shot on location in Jerusalem and India, but mostly in different religious communities in Western Norway, PRAY covers the major world religions – and then some. Despite being a film about speaking to God, PRAY is a purely observational documentary bereft of dialogue, which masters the mantra "Show, don't tell".
