Clarity in life is rare and fleeting when it does come.  H.L. Mencken wrote, “The answers to life’s problems are neat, plausible and wrong.”    How do we live with the ambiguities in our relationships and daily lives?  Our films in this series reveal the shadows and light that invite reality.  Our Trinitarian God is a relationship that embraces life’s complexities, suffering and love.  Films from France, Sweden, Iran, U.S., China and Australia.  Please call to ask about titles.

Films selected by Fr. Larry Lewis, M.M.
