Why do we go to the cinema? Films can carry us into other worlds or even hold a mirror up to our own. What does the experience have to do with our faith? Across a morning or afternoon, we’ll look at the ways in which films can inspire us to deeper reflections on the big issues of life. We’ll talk about the ways that different genres of film operate with faith ideas; such as horror, fantasy, drama and action. We’ll then break into groups to discuss the films that have inspired us in one way or another and each group will make a short presentation.
