The historic first Hindu prayer of United States Senate of last July is one of the significant topics in a new documentary film, "ARTICLE VI: Faith* Politics* America", due to be commercially released in theaters on September 19.

The scene when Rajan Zed, well-known Hindu leader, who read this first prayer in the 218 years history of the Senate, was protested, appears prominently in the documentary. This documentary also shows the interviews of protesters and others about their reactions to Hindu prayer in the Senate, besides Zed.

Directed by Bryan D. Hall and Jack Donaldson under Living Biography Media banner, this documentary, which took over two years to make and which is making big splashes in pre-screenings across the nation, offers an intense discussion of the role of faith in politics and examination of the religious freedom and intolerance in America.
