3D: Summer Semester 1: Movies are Not a Low Art

3D: Summer Semester 1: Movies are Not a Low Art

It’s time to go back to class. Newcomer to the podcast David Lichty takes us on an excellent 7-session journey that deals deeply with film and theology. Join us!

The Promised Handout:

A Brief Overview of where we’re going:

  1. Overview – Why movies are great?
  2. Setting Proper Boundaries…Protection? Sure, maybe. But it’s person specific, not content specific. We’ll bring the tools you’ll need.
  3. Worldviews and Assumptions: Seeing through Acts 17
  4. Assumptions and worldviews: We are to test, and not too simplistically.
  5. Things I’ve learned about God from how we watch movies AND You are not a sponge. You are a spokesman.
  6. When Gore is just Porn
  7. How to know what’s good, and the Fun of New Horizons

Also, because of the (previous working) title:

Thanks to Critical Commons too, for recognizing the value of clips in education, and hosting the video version. I do recommend that version if you can work it out, but really just so you can see the clips. It is a movies talk, after all. I’ve beefed up the in-between bits with notes and images, of course, just to keep the screen from being distractingly blank, but really it’s about those clips. With David Atwell’s, class #3, I think it’s essential. Not so here, but recommended.
