Addresses issues of interpretation and analysis in the convergence of religion and film. Addresses three areas under this broad rubric: 1) film representations of established religions; 2) film and the construction of social values; and 3) film as contemporary "myth." Treating films as social texts, we will ask what such representations of ourselves to ourselves suggest about culture in general.
