Course DescriptionJoin us as we view and discuss six European Art films. They are documentaries of moral, social, political or religious issues of extreme importance, while facing and attacking the fragmentation of contemporary life. Goodby Children and Unlovely focus on the loss of childhood innocence; Turkish for Beginners dwells on relationships, both young and old, and ethnic tensions; We Have a Pope stresses the need for human contact over the responsibility of leading a religious corporation; and The Amber Amulet reveals the damaging allegiance between East and West German political systems ripping apart a family. The final film will remain a mystery. All films are in German or French with English subtitles. A discussion will follow each film. Presented by Michael Heinsdorf, MDiv, STM, MA, a former Lutheran pastor, high school German instructor and adjunct faculty member at LaSalle University.
