Film & Theology: THE MATRIX 20th Anniversary
November 8, 2019 @ 6:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Movies with a message! Join us for a film and short message! Check out the film that started out THIS Pastor’s journey to understanding connections between film and theology. It’s also the 20 year anniversary of a film that woke MANY up to seeing the metaphor and messages in the narrative of film. Sparking MUCH discussion in 1999, and spawning two polarizing sequels, this film is still a landmark in science fiction and event-storytelling. Join us as we see how this character is used to explore classic and biblical archetypes.
About Film & Theology:
Cinema is a modern day pulpit, reinforcing ideas through narrative about what it means to be a hero, a villain, living in this world today or living in a fantasy world that reflects our issues through metaphor and allegorical parallels. Instead of avoiding secular culture and the stories in popular entertainment, we believe we should engage them head-on in a way that lets us enjoy ALL experiences as worship, connected to our growth in God and loving the world around us.
