Synopsis

"Searching for Hell" starts out as a quest to discover the truth behind the story of digging a hole to Hell - the deepest bore hole in the world -in Siberia in the 1980s. From there, it continues across different continents, cultures and ideas, in an attempt to discover what and where Hell is today. Five film-making teams embark on a journey to tell the personal and creative stories of people inhabiting contemporary Hells all over the world; the township-turned-theme-park of Hell in Michigan, a house converted into a morbid vision of Buddhist Hell in Japan, a deadly sulphur lake in Indonesia, and the dark present-day Congo. They are all doors to Hell. This creative and original feature documentary "Searching for Hell" will walk you through those doors, examining Hell'sgeographical, cultural and social realities.
