This term, Ethics through Fiction and Film will focus on the latest film of one of the most morally, philosophically and theologically engaged filmmakers working today.

Terrence Malick, a one-time postgraduate student at Magdalen College, Oxford and sometime translator of Heidegger, has just released A Hidden Life. Based on real events, it tells the story of a devoutly Catholic, Austrian, conscientious objector who refuses to fight for the Nazis in World War II.

Ethics through Fiction and Film will attend a screening, and follow the viewing with discussion, at the Curzon Cinema in the late afternoon or the evening of Thursday 13th February (exact screening times will not be released until early February).

Email jonathan.brant@theology.ox.ac.uk if you would like to attend the viewing and discussion.
