Premiere The Spectacular Absence of GOD

May 12, 2022
The Spectacular Absence of GOD, the new documentary by Erik Fransman, is finished! The documentary will premiere on May 20, 2022 in the Ketelhuis in Amsterdam. Two days later, on Sunday 22 May at 15:25, this documentary will be broadcast on NPO2.

For centuries people have wondered who they are and where they belong. So is Erik Fransman, a worldly, atheistic, assimilated Dutch Jew. In the opening scenes of the film, Erik answers the question: “Are you Jewish?” with a resounding yes. The answer to “Do you feel Jewish?” turns out to be a more difficult issue. After a moment of hesitation, he also answers this question with a yes. But where exactly does this feeling come from? That is more complicated! The film follows Erik’s quest in which he searches for his identity in a relativistic way, but also confronts his aversion to religion.
