Theater and Film: A Christian Perspective
With Theater and Film: A Christian Perspective, Paul Kuritz revises his acclaimed book, The Fiery Serpent: A Christian Theory of Film and Theater, through the perspective of the ancient Orthodox church. Following the lead of the great Russian filmmaker Andrey Tarkovsky, who asked, "Perhaps our capacity to create is evidence that we ourselves were created in the image of God?" Kuritz examines Moses' bronze serpent as a paradigm for understanding the Christian artist's work in theater and film. The reader will discover how a Christian artist can make theater and film in union with Christ, so that the work is not merely that of an individual, but of his common life with and in Christ.
