Movie Moments of Grace
Please join us on Saturday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in Trinity Hall to view contemporary films, and engage in small group discussion about how the film engaged us as human beings at a deep emotional level. In the tradition of Ignatian Spirituality, reflection on this affective response can be a rich source of spiritual insight and self-discovery. The heart of any drama is the moral decisions that face central characters. How characters respond to their challenges, and how we react to the way we respond to the characters, can provide grist for a salutary reflection on our own behavior and our desires to grow as integrated human beings. All are welcome! For further information and to RSVP, please email email@example.com
Although the remainder of the scheduled 2019-2020 season has been canceled, all are invited to participate in the online version of Movie Moments of Grace via Zoom.
Monday, June 1, 7:30 – 8:30 pm.
Participants will first watch the film on their own. It is Tulipani: Love, Honor, and a Bicycle, offered for free streaming on the Filmfest DC website, beginning May 29. Tulipani received an award from the SIGNIS* Jury at Filmfest DC in 2018. Mary and Frank Frost head up that jury, which issued the following citation: With laugh-out-loud humor and joyous color this movie celebrates personal love and community connections when a Dutch tulip farmer, displaced by a major flood, takes his tulips and his fortunes to Italy. Not even the local Mafia’s control and cruelty that threaten his new town, his family, and their livelihoods, can triumph over the altruistic goodness he represents.
RSVPs are required in order to receive the Zoom link. RSVP by 10pm Sunday, May 31st by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and say YES to MMOG June 1.
