Not all Blasphemy relates to conventional religion. Today, it can also relate to secular and social movements which practice cancel culture; which is, after all, a form of punishment for blasphemy.
This documentary by filmmaker and senior correspondent Martin Himel examines both classic and contemporary cases of blasphemy, where a particular belief or point of view claims infallibility and condemns all who dare to question or oppose.
Our encore of Blasphemy is in recognition and support of International Human Rights Day, held annually on Dec. 10, which is a day dedicated to educating individuals and groups about blasphemy laws and defending freedom of expression.
Each year, VisionTV’s Executive Producer Moses Znaimer commissions original documentaries and factual series from Canadian producers and filmmakers on subjects related to human rights, and spiritual, ethical, and social issues. Moses previously commissioned the documentaries Follow The Money (an investigation of the alliance between radical Islamic terror militias and organized crime), Persecuted Christians, and Jew Bashing: The New Anti-Semitism from Toronto/Israel-based filmmaker Martin Himel. These titles also premiered on VisionTV and have since run many times including during VisionTV’s Human Rights Week.
