Last summer, I passed along some news about an upcoming short-film anthology called Words with Gods. Produced by Guillermo Arriaga and featuring music by Peter Gabriel, the anthology consists of several short films about religion directed by filmmakers like Hector Babenco, Mira Nair and Emir Kusturica.
