Land of Plenty

An interview with Wim Wenders about his latest, Land of Plenty, a post-9/11 perspective on America, as it opens in Germany. (It's an InDiGent production, shot on video in 16 days for under a mill.) Wenders tells Deutsche Welle, The idea for 'Land of Plenty' originated with the fundamentalist Christianity of the Bush era, from the anger that Christianity has been so perverted and used in so a perfidious manner for political interests. As a Christian, I know no other option except to be against war and to have solidarity with the poor.
