Films of Faith & Doubt

Monday 4th - Thursday 7th November

An opportunity to view and reflect on classic and contemporary films of faith and doubt. This years selection includes F. W. Murnau’s silent classic morality tale Sunrise (1927). From 2012, we are considering what many people consider to be the best film of the year Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, which shows the dark side of the American dream and is perhaps based on L. Ron Hubbard and his scientology cult.

Also from 2012 comes Ang Lee’s Life of Pi, a story designed to make you believe in God.

Why good people commit evil acts is the question at the centre of the film version of C.P.Taylor’s play Good (2008).

The director Costa-Gavras has always been a political film-maker and Amen explores the Vatican’s attitude to the holocaust.

A rather different side of life in the Vatican is displayed in Moretti’s gently mocking comedy, Habemus Papam (2011).

The inclusive course fee (£255 - £285) covers morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast. Non-residential prices, Clergy and Student discounts are available on request.
