Supported by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America and Ancient Faith Ministries and directed by Nathan Jacobs, “Becoming Truly Human” looks at the rise of the “nones”—those with no religious affiliation. Recent surveys indicate that 25% of the US population falls into this category, garnering enthusiasm from atheists and concern from religious leaders and groups. The film delves into the faith journeys of eight “nones”—one of whom embraces Orthodox Christianity—thereby reframing the “nones” as people defined not by unaffiliation, but by their search for something deeper than the religions of their youth.
“Becoming Truly Human” is also available for purchase on DVD and Blu-Ray from Ancient Faith Ministries and is ideal for viewing and discussion in parish group settings.
