Theology Night Live will feature a showing of the film “Of Gods and Men” on Wednesday, March 14. The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Room 100, McNeely Hall. (Note the change of location.)
Everyone is welcome; pizza and beverages will be provided.
“Though it takes place in the recent past, ‘Of Gods and Men’ has an unmistakably timely resonance, evoking as it does both the messy wars on terror and the rebellions currently convulsing North Africa and the Middle East. And yet while it takes pains to be historically authentic, the film, closely based on the true story of a group of French Cistercian Trappist monks caught up (and ultimately killed) in the violence, also keeps an eye on less worldly, temporal concerns.” (From a New York Times review; read the complete review here.)
The movie stars Lambert Wilson and Michael Lonsdale and was directed by Xavier Beauvois.
