    Faith in Film Series

    Faith in Film Series

    Join us for an evening discussion on faith in the cinematic arts. This fall, our two nights will feature a viewing of “The Truman Show” and “The Matrix.”  The Truman show is a film about a man who is caught in a television show that captures his every move through hidden cameras. Truman (Jim Carrey) is seeking the truth and is willing to leave his former life behind in order to find it. “The Matrix”, a film about Neo (Keanu Reeves), who believes that Morpheus, an elusive figure considered to be the most dangerous man alive, can answer his question — What is the Matrix? It is a truth that could cost Neo something more precious than his life. Popcorn and refreshments provided. Please RSVP prior to the event.
