THE NATURE OF EXISTENCE theatrical trailer

Filmmaker Roger Nygard (TREKKIES) takes on THE NATURE OF EXISTENCE, roaming the globe to interview spiritual leaders, scientists, and artists who have influenced, inspired, or terrified humanity. Distributed by Tubemogul.

"My travels around the world to seek out spiritual leaders, atheists, scientists, and others for my latest documentary, The Nature of Existence, came about as a result of my awareness of my own mortality. My father died when I was thirteen, and suddenly I had a swarm of questions about life and death. I wondered what the point of everything was. It wasn’t until twenty-five years later, when the events of 9-11 shocked our entire country into considering our mortality–for about a week–that I started to badger my friends with questions: Why do we exist? What is our purpose? If there’s an afterlife, where exactly is it located? What or who created the Universe? With billions of stars in billions of galaxies to be mindful of, why would a god get so apoplectic if you masturbate? Finally, I wrote down the 85 toughest questions I could think of and went on the road."
