In the most surprising election results of modern times, Donald J. Trump defied expectations to become the 45th president of the United States. Though written off by almost every major news outlet and poll, Trump pulled through to victory in part because of the unwavering support of his staunchest supporters - Evangelical Christians.

Despite lewd comments, a checkered past, and two failed marriages, Trump became the choice of most Evangelical voters, winning 80% of the Christian vote. Why? Many in the Christian community were asking, "How can Christians vote for Donald Trump?" while others were asking, "How can Christians not vote for Donald Trump?" 

Now, largely because of the election and the endorsement of several high-profile Christian leaders, there exists a clear divide in the faith community. It was recently reported that 14% of Christian churchgoers have since left the Church because of something related to the 2016 Presidential Election. Why? What's happening? Can these differences be reconciled within the Church?

That remains to be seen. In the meantime, this film will explore these matters by inviting the voices of ministers, voters, Christian writers, and political reporters to create something that tells the story of Trump's relationship with the faith community. Some of our confirmed interview subjects include major voices in the Christian Left community, Trump voters who believe he was "God's chosen candidate," and Christian activists who have committed to resisting every step of his presidency.

Did Donald Trump become a Christian, as some claim, or did he orchestrate a major con by going through the motions in order to get votes? 

Risks and challenges

This is certainly the most timely film project I have ever attempted, which I believe will result in a definite response. Already, many have enthusiastically agreed to participate in the discussion - why? Because these issues concern them, too.

All of us are affected by the Office of the President, and whereas faith can provide respite, for many it has become politicized and divisive.

We only need a couple thousand to cover travel, equipment, and festival submissions. Be part of something.
