PRAYING FOR ARMAGEDDON is a chilling political docu-thriller that reveals the power and influence of U.S. fundamentalist Evangelicals as they aim to fulfill the prophecy of a Holy War that will trigger the Second Coming of Christ. Award-winning director Tonje Hessen Schei (iHUMAN, DRONE) gains unprecedented access to Evangelical preachers, politicians, and the self-proclaimed “warriors of God” who are fueling the volatile situation in Israel and Palestine. From grassroots rallying to megachurch empires to the dark backrooms of Washington, D.C., this alarming film uncovers the insidious movement behind escalating spirals of violence in the Middle East, with the ultimate aim to destroy our civilization.


Scheduled to attend: Tonje Hessen Schei, Hussain Currimbhoy, Michael Rowley, Sabrina Buckwalter
