Film & Theology: ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL
August 9 @ 6:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Movies with a message! Join us for a film and short message! When a mysterious cyborg girl falls to earth and is given new life by a caring father: she finds herself in a broken world where chaos reigns and people long to escape to the floating and seemingly heavenly city above. But who controls the path to this better world, and what does it cost to get there? And why to forces seem to conspire against this strange and powerful girl? Join us to see the film and explore why we are drawn to this narrative of discovery and overcoming adversity.
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.
