Students in Dr. Wolff's Religion & Film class view a series of films that engage religion broadly conceived. Using analytical tools from the study of religion, students both sympathetically and critically evaluate cultural themes and religious expressions in film. Students become familiar with technique used in film and develop a scholarly vocabulary for analyzing these elements.
