Only A God Can Save Us is a 2009 documentary film by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Jeffrey van Davis about German philosopher Martin Heidegger. It is a critical view of Heidegger's relationship to National Socialism. It attempts to examine those elements in Heidegger's thought which led him to become an enthusiastic supporter of Hitler and the Nazi Revolution. Shot in Germany, France, the US and Holland, it includes interviews with friends and major scholars such as Bernd Martin, Hugo Ott, Rainer Marten, Silke Seemann, Iain Thomson, Tom Rockmore, Emmanuel Faye, Ted Kisiel, Victor Farias, Richard Wolin, Axel Graf Douglas and Jurgen Paul, among others. This film is a Terrance Edward Davis Production. A Freiburg Germany newspaper quote reads: "an ambitious film which examines Heidegger's intellectual and political career. Jeffrey van Davis does not shy away from the truth. The film is thoroughly researched."--Badische Zeitung
