A NEW view films series
Film + Discussion

Presented and facilitated by the Desmond Tutu Center, Center for Interfaith Cooperation, and The Center for Faith and Vocation at Butler University, A New View Film Series will journey outside everyday life to explore new world-views through the screening of five films.

The series is free and open to the public.
