Audience Awards staff pick film, What Comes After Religion, directed by Jonathan Hodgson, looks into a question not often asked. What should fill the gaps created by the end of widespread belief?
Jonathan Hodgson is an internationally renowned London based filmmaker. After leaving the Royal College of Art, he went on to work as a director at several animation studios and later became the Art Director of the animated series, Charlie & Lola and the film, The Age of Stupid. Hodgson has taught since the 1980’s and continues to combine teaching with animated filmmaking through his production company, Hodgens Films.
Hodgson has won numerous awards for his films including a BAFTA for the films The Man with the Beautiful Eyes and Camouflage.
The debate between believers and atheists usually goes nowhere. The real issue is what should fill the God-shaped hole brought by the end of widespread belief?
