ReligionProf Podcast with Rob Orlando (and The Divine Plan Q&A at Butler University)

ReligionProf Podcast with Rob Orlando (and The Divine Plan Q&A at Butler University) October 23, 2019

The latest episode of the ReligionProf podcast features Rob Orlando.

He and I didn’t manage to record the episode literally face to face while he was on campus during his visit to Indianapolis. But we did record it while he was in town, if via Zoom from a remote location. And so, as a special treat for blog readers, here is a video of the recording which is available in slightly edited form as an audio podcast above:

I’ve got more to share related to this. Below is a video recording of the Q&A panel discussion after the special advance screening of Rob Orlando’s new movie, The Divine Plan, which took place at Butler University on October 3rd. The movie will be out in theaters on November 6th. Visit the Fathom Events website to find out where it is playing near you and to get your tickets.

There’s also a new book out from Fortress Press that looks interesting, which I think Rob may enjoy reading, and/or might use at some future point when teaching a class or seminar. The title is Insights from Filmmaking for Analyzing Biblical Narrative and it is by Gary Yamasaki.

Come back tomorrow for more content related to Rob Orlando’s films, as the Apostle Paul APB series continues!

    I just wanted to share this blurb about the movie:

    THE DIVINE PLAN: REAGAN, JOHN PAUL II & The End of the Cold War/ A film by Robert Orlando It remains the least-known story of the twentieth century… A president and a pope; an unlikely pair who combine deep faith with political acumen and high-octane star power. A plot that involves two assassination attempts, KGB scheming, CIA intrigue and the final act to topple the Soviet Empire.

    This epic saga takes a writer-director with deep knowledge of religious and political history on a quest to tell this compelling true-life story. Robert Orlando, whose credits include Apostle Paul: A Polite Bribe and the recent Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War, takes viewers behind the scenes of a partnership that changed the world, asking daring questions… Was a pontiff and politician’s work overthrowing communism the result of inexorable political and economic forces, or could it have been part of what Reagan called, “The Divine Plan”? Told in part as a graphic thriller this highly-stylized motion picture film pushes beyond the bounds of conventional documentary-making into a world where one’s belief might determine the facts.
