BVRG in partnership with the National Film and Sound Archive present the 2001 film 'The Man Who Sued God'.
After lawyer Steve Myers (Billy Connolly) abandons his career, he buys a boat and pursues a quiet life as a fisherman. His plans are obstructed when a bolt of lightning destroys his vessel, and his insurance company tells him he isn't covered because the incident was an "act of God." Teaming up with Anne (Judy Davis), a journalist who's sympathetic to his plight, Steve sues God, who is represented in court by religious leaders. The defendants must give evidence of God's existence or pay.
The Man Who Sued God is a 2001 Australian comedy film directed by Mark Joffe. Filmed in Bermagui and surrounds, it features the fishing boat the 'Tarpin’, a charter vessel, hired from Bermagui Boat Harbour.
