A Pentecostal minister with no experience as a filmmaker receives a divine vision instructing him to shoot an epic science fiction film based on the Biblical tale of Joseph, and documentary filmmaker Michael Jacobs follows every step of the tumultuous film production that follows. As tension on the set rises and the production experiences a series of disheartening setbacks, Jacobs catches charismatic minister-turned-director Richard Gazowsky and his loyal flock as they strive to see their vision reach the silver screen. Set to be shot on 70mm film and described by the ambitious director as Star Wars meets The Ten Commandments, Gravity: The Shadow of Joseph aspires to truly biblical proportions. Now, as the impressive but inexperienced cast and crew travels to Italy and prepares to shoot their epic on state of the art film equipment, the production hits an unforeseen hitch as the $100 million promised to them by German investors fails to materialize. With rumors of Satan's mischief soon being whispered among the members of the congregation/crew, the pastor remains resolute in his vision and determined to conquer any and all obstacles that stand in their way.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Rated No Rating .
