REL 253 - Theology Through Film

4.00 credits.
This course invites students to reflect theologically on the content of contemporary films. While film style and technique will be discussed to a limited extent, the course will be oriented unapologetically toward viewing narrative, plot, character development, imagery, symbols and values in the light of implicit and explicit religious, spiritual, mythological, ideological and ethical themes. Some attention will be given to various methodologies and theoretical issues in the field of religion and film.
