95 Theses

"95 Theses" is a documentary film project centered at http://95thesesfilm.com that coincides with the 500th anniversary of the symbolic start of the Protestant Reformation. Instead of telling Martin Luther’s whole biographical story, the film incorporates interviews with theologians of different faith traditions, from Catholic to Anglican to Presbyterian to Lutheran. The 500th anniversary is really about Luther’s posting of the 95 Theses on October 31, 1517 – and so, resisting the evangelical fanfare of other films for the occasion, this one focuses on the document itself, and asks what it can tell us 500 years later. Combining lush cinematography from Germany, with rapid-fire footage of today’s social and religious movements, this unique film includes original music by experimental hip-hop artist Black Saturn, mashed up with styles ranging from cyberpunk to J.S. Bach. "95 Theses" asks questions we can’t ignore, and takes a hard look at who we’ve become.
