Christian Movies and the Quest for Artistry

Crisis Magazine published yesterday this thoughtful piece by Father Bryce Sibley about why Christian films are typically so bad. (I haven’t yet seen, by the way, For Greater Glory, but have higher hopes for it.)

Last Fall at the annual conference of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture, I gave a talk on the same topic. Entitled “Christians and Aliens: Making Movies in a Culture of Death,” you can stream it via this page on the Center’s website (just scroll down the list of videos, mine is on the bottom row).

Comments welcome!

P.S. You’ll also find on this page videos of great talks from this conference by Father Robert Barron, Alasdair MacIntyre, and others.
