Interterm classes

Screening the Sacred: Religion & Spirituality in Contemporary Film

RLGS 3701 - 4 credits

Dates: December 2-11, 2014
Days: Monday - Thursday
Location: On-campus
Instructor: Luis Leon
 Times:   12:00 - 5:00 pm 

Description: This course explores spirituality through film. We will see films each day in class, and I will ask you to write a paper comparing them at the end of each week, incorporating insights gained from reading and from class discussions. Our goals include understanding how film frames and mediates religious expression, in addition to gaining knowledge of religious traditions themselves. That is, a basic critical and analytical film literacy, understanding the film's technical components, as well as appreciating film as a religious expression.
