PROBLEM OF EVIL focuses on the inner circle of a modern day religious cult, touching on the topics of unquestioning faith in a higher power, and the timeless themes of love, loss and redemption. This independent drama evokes a cerebral and meditative state, proudly adopting the artistic moniker of 'contemplative cinema' or 'slow cinema.' While production budget may classify it as a niche film, the main theme of questioning one’s faith applies to a wide audience.

Written/Directed/Shot/Produced by Ethan Kogan and Jessica Silvetti, the film stars Hemky Madera (Rango, Showtime’s Weeds, HBO’s Luck), Cynthia Ettinger (HBO’s Carnivale and Deadwood) and Jarreth Merz (The Passion of the Christ, ER, An African Election).
