jewish-cardinalJoin us for another film in the 2016-2017 New View Film Series: The Jewish Cardinal. In this film, Jean-Marie Lustiger maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent within the cursed walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities, and may be forced at last to choose his side.

About A New View Film Series: 

Each of us has a unique view through which we see the world. Shaped by our experiences, culture, and familial identity, this view forms our beliefs, values, and way of life. A New View Film Series will journey outside everyday life to explore new worldviews through the screening of five films. Each screening will be followed by a discussion of the film lead by Charlie Wiles, Executive Director at the Center for Interfaith Cooperation. The series is free and open to the public.

Presented and Facilitated by the Desmond Tutu Center, Center for Interfaith Cooperation, and the Center for Faith and Vocation.
