The Post Summer Film Festival Wrap Up

3 films in 3 weeks. That’s what we just got finished doing at Western Hills. Here are the links to the both my reviews and the discussions on Sunday mornings.

I need to give two huge ‘thanks’.

First to my home church, Western Hills. I don’t know how many church families would not only allow but enjoy 3 weeks of working through films critically and seeing them through the eyes of Christ.

Second, to Nathan Mees. He is a high school teacher at Washburn Rural High School that teaches a class called Film as Literature. He has a keen insight into film and great handle on how to tell a story. If you only listen to one podcast of the discussions – listen to the Life of Pi one where Nathan gives us a crash course on what to look for in a film.

I love doing this because I think it’s so important for us to see films as modern parables. This art form can be very, very beautiful. And beauty makes us better worshippers.
