Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) will continue its Image & Word film series this semester with an exploration of the resurrection through two films, The Matrix and The Usual Suspects.
The film series, which began last fall , seeks to practice the art of discerning the theological contours of a film—in its philosophical, historical, and technical components—and to deepen imaginative and pastoral acumen as viewers. It also seeks to foster community through small, informal gatherings.
The discussion-based series will be led by Th.M. and film student Naaman Wood and by DITA post-doctoral fellow Dan Train.
Viewings, lectures, and discussion will be held in Wood's home on Feb. 20 for The Matrix  and on March 19 for The Usual Suspects  at 6:15 p.m., with refreshments provided. Sessions are open to Divinity students, staff, and faculty only.
