Christ Figures in Popular Films
October 29, 2017 - November 19, 2017, 9:30 - 10:30 am
Christ Figures in Popular Films (Parlor). Hollywood films both reflect and influence culture through cinematic storytelling. In a follow-up to last year’s “Jesus Christ Movie Star,” this class examines a number of popular movies, looking at how various film roles show characteristics of Christ, how these portrayals evolved, and what these movie messiahs might mean to our culture and us. Mark Stucky will lead the class.
