Can the Holy Spirit direct a movie? In this fast-paced documentary from the director of Finger of God, Furious Love and Father of Lights, Darren Wilson sets out to make a movie that is completely led by the Holy Spirit. No plan, no script, no safety net – just go wherever he feels the Spirit leading him to try and discover the adventure God has for him. Whether its the riches of Monte Carlo, a heavy metal concert, or the oldest city in the world, the result is a film that not only challenges and excites, but also reveals a God who is far more alive and active than you ever imagined.
While we understand that the more modern term for the third member of the Trinity is typically “Holy Spirit”, Darren did not want to use that title for a few reasons. He did want to keep the name of the Holy Spirit front and center in the title so no one would have any question as to what the film was about, but chose to go with “Holy Ghost” in large part due to the overall point of the film.
Early on in the film Darren claims that his desire is to “make God famous.” He is simply stating that this film is looking to reclaim some of the reputation that has been tarnished regarding the Holy Spirit over the years. Holy Ghost is an older term, one associated with old time religion, tent revival meetings, and perhaps a more primitive view of God and grace. By making this the title, we want to put a new spin on an old concept. Bring something fresh to something that, for many, seems outdated and archaic. In essence, it is a somewhat ironic title, and one with a fair amount of tension in it. But we believe that tension is a necessity of all great art, and therefore, Holy Ghost it is.
