Oprah Presents: Belief

Seven billion people, searching for connection,
redemption, and meaning.

Presented by Oprah Winfrey, Belief shares the stories of everyday people from many faiths and beliefs and their deep connection to the world around them.

Travelling to the far reaches of world, Belief searches the origins of diverse faiths and the heart of what really matters. From the epic to the intimate, webbed throughout each episode are stories of people on spiritual journeys, including: the largest peaceful gathering in the history of the world as a group of believers seek redemption along the banks of a holy river; a free climber on the side of a mountain who believes there is no greater power than just being present as he climbs without rope; and the quiet of the night in the Australian outback as an Aboriginal elder seeks to pass on the wisdom and culture of his tribe’s 50,000 year-old history to his grandson to share with future generations.

From Burning Man in the Nevada desert, to the banks of the Ganges in India for the world’s largest spiritual gathering, to the Whirling Dervishes of the Middle East, Belief takes viewers to the four corners of the globe, where ordinary people everywhere are demonstrating their beliefs in their daily lives.

Through vivid, emotional storytelling and cinematic visual imagery, Belief illuminates the best of faith and spiritual practices from around the world – the rituals, stories and relationships that bind us all together as human beings. These stories and others will all lead us to ask: “What do you believe?”

“For the past three years, my team and I have been working to find the most compelling and thoughtful stories of faith, love and devotion from around the world,” said Oprah Winfrey. “This truly has been my heart’s work, to be able to share stories like these that reflect our world and explore humankind’s ongoing search to connect with something greater than ourselves.”
