>On February 10-11, 2005, the Boston Theological Institute in association
>with the Boston University Institute for Philosophy and Religion will host
>the fourth annual "Boston Faith and Film Festival" at the Brattle Cinema in
>Cambridge.
>
>This year, the festival will focus on the theme of evil, and a variety of
>popular, classic, and independent films across diverse genres will be
>screened to explore cinematic portrayals of evil and, in particular, the
>religious dimensions and significance of these portrayals. So, for example,
>how does cinema participate in the construction and deconstruction of
>ongoing mythologies of evil? How does cinema ask and answer the question of
>the problem of evil? Specific films to be screened will be announced at a
>later date and on the BTI website (www.bostontheological.org).
>
>Each screening will be followed by a dialogue session facilitated by guest
>panelists. A scholar's symposium with papers focusing on the religious
>dimensions of theme will be held on Saturday morning, February 11 (see
>"Call for Papers" below). The Institute for Philosophy and Religion will
>also offer a number of lectures during the fall semester on philosophical,
>literary, and religious aspects of the problem of evil, some of which will
>also focus on cinematic aspects.
>
>Inquiries may be directed to Dr. Bryan Stone of Boston University at
>617-353-2456 or [log in to unmask] Tickets will be available at the box office
>only on the dates of the festival.
