ADVISORY/Amazon Theater Debuts ``Do Geese See God'' Starring Blair Underwood


Third in the five-film series, "Do Geese See God" features Underwood

as a modern man obsessed with finding inner salvation


The third of five films in the Amazon Theater short film series, "Do
Geese See God," stars Blair Underwood and is directed by David Slade.
The film debuts today on's homepage (

Amazon has produced a series of five short films distributed ONLY on as a free holiday gift to its customers. Today, and each
Tuesday through December 7, will debut a new film in the
Amazon Theater series, which customers can view directly from the homepage.

"The quantity of people you can reach on Amazon is really
amazing--we're talking about millions of customers," said actor Blair
Underwood. "Imagine getting that number of people watching a
television show, or in a movie theater? Amazon Theater is an
innovative new way to reach the consumer and to entertain."

Slade shot the film throughout downtown Los Angeles this past summer.
While incorporating the karmic message that is the loose thread
running through all five films in the series, "Do Geese See God"
uniquely captures the gritty feel of the city as a backdrop for the
rising, circular, frenetic tension of Underwood's character. "Do Geese
See God" is a palindrome, one of several in the film. Customers who
"stop and smell the roses" will have access to special alternate
endings that ultimately release them from the film's perpetual loop.
