Roger Nygard has come back to Earth—or has he?

The highly regarded documentary filmmaker went to the outer reaches of the galaxy a few years ago when he profiled Star Trek fans—and a few actors from the show—to make Trekkies and its sequel, Trekkies 2. Somehow, he made fun of Trek fans at the same time he captured the essence of the beliefs and devotion to the world of Gene Roddenberry.

Now he’s back trying to make sense of a much greater challenge, The Nature of Existence itself.

ROGER NYGARD podcast excerpt: “Most of my friends are comedians–although the majority of them don’t know it. But they make me laugh. When I started out, I thought I was going to get into fistfights because these are sensitive questions. You’d think people would be reluctant to answer some of these questions but it was harder to get them to shut up than to start!”

Nygard’s The Nature of Existence premiered in New York City on June 18, at the Quad Cinemas, 34 West 13th Street, and opens on July 2 at the Sunset 5 Theaters @ 8000 W. Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles:

One of the boldest characters in Nygard’s Existence is someone whom I instantly remembered from college in the early 1980s: Brother Jed Smock, the self-appointed campus evangelist at the University of Florida.

If you see only one movie about existence this year, make it this one.
