TH 385 - The Theological and the Religious in International Cinema

(3.00 cr.)

Going beyond a narrow evaluation of the morality of films or the mere recognition of their explicit religious subject matter, this course considers specifically religious or theological issues raised in non-American cinema. It also explores the theological implications of some international films that do not deal explicitly with religious issues, events, or even symbols. Finally, recurring theological and religious references are investigated, such as cinematic analogues of both redemption and damnation and figures of Christ and Satan.

Prerequisite: TH 201 .
Interdisciplinary Studies: IC/IF
