Film Screening: A Question of Habit!
March 3, 2014 @ 6:00 p.m.
in Meyer Library Room 101
Everyone is invited to this free, public film screening of “A Question of Habit,” a full-length documentary film that examines visual images of Catholic nuns and sisters used in contemporary U.S. pop culture in contrast to actual religious women. The film looks at the nature, scope, and significance of these images, possible explanations for their increasing popularity, and the impact on our understanding of religious women. A discussion with filmmaker Bren Ortega Murphy will follow.
The film was written, produced, and edited by Bren Ortega Murphy and Michael Whalen. See the film’s website, here.
