Hey, DC / Arlington area!


Local to the Washington metropolitan area? This Friday, May 13th, I’ll be at the FORUM Arlington talking about cinema and Catholic faith — at least, if the title of my talk, “A Ray of God: Movies and Catholic Teaching” is any indication.

Topics that might come up:

  • Why do movies matter at all (or not matter)?
  • How does the Catholic Church view the world of cinema, and how has it changed over time?
  • How has the Church’s moral teaching shaped its response to cinema historically, and how should it shape our response today?
  • What makes a good movie good or a bad movie bad? How do you tell the difference?

As with past FORUM Arlington lectures, the evening begins with happy hour at 7:30; my talk begins at 8:30. Q&A follows. Hope to see you there.
