Faith, Film, and Culture – Student Learning Cohort

March 1 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 PM on Wednesday, repeating until Wed 03.08.23


Students! Are you interested in films that make you think and inspire wonder? Join us for lunch, film-viewing, and discussion of four remarkable short documentaries/stories produced by the WindRider Institute. Our discussions will probe meaning, faith, and culture. Upper House will provide lunch, so you can focus on—

  • A Concerto is a Conversation
  • Beneath the Ink
  • Wondrous
  • The Wind Phone

Visual media can enliven our imaginations and reflections. It can move us emotionally and spiritually. It can metaphorically transport us to other places. Discussing our observations, questions, and points of connection with others can illuminate fresh insights about our culture, other people groups, and even our spiritual tensions and pursuits. Please join us and explore new territory through film.


Group Size

20 students
