Recurring Event Event Series: Faith & Film Series

Faith & Film Series

May 13 @ 7:00 pm 10:00 pm

Geneva Hall, Room G202
Co-sponsored by First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley and New College Berkeley

Join us for the return of our Faith & Film Series in which we examine the potent and relevant medium of film in exploring themes of love, faith, conscience, evil, death, redemption, grace, morality, identity, and our yearning for the “sacred.”

Each month, we will view a different film––each unique, compelling, and demanding– reflecting our current times. Each film is curated by those who love this artistic medium who will host a conversation following our viewing.

Registration for the series is ongoing.
