The films of French director Eric Rohmer will be the focus for an event at the University of Bristol Catholic Chaplaincy this Sunday, 25 February.
The evening is part of a programme organised by Father Robert King, Catholic Chaplain to the University of Bristol, in which speakers speakers to discuss the relationship between Catholicism and their field of expertise. To mark the beginning of the Penitential season of Lent, the 'favourable time' for ongoing conversion to holiness, Father Robert has invited a movie buff to tell his story.
Keith Tester, Professor of Cultural Sociology at the University of Portsmouth will be talking about how the films of the French director Eric Rohmer unexpectedly helped him towards Catholicism.
In his talk Keith will argue that Rohmer's films reflect a specifically Catholic view of the appearance of grace in the world.
Keith said: "I am delighted to be visiting the University Chaplaincy, and to be given a chance to discuss a matter that is important to me with the kind of committed, knowledge and yet considerate audience with which Bristol is associated."
