In conjunction with ‘Fuller Studio’, we have the pleasure of bringing you a special interview with Hollywood legend and director of the new film ‘Silence’ Martin Scorsese. ‘A Conversation with Martin Scorsese on Faith and Film’ is 30 minute sit down discussion that will give you a deeper insight into the inner working of the movie and the inspiration behind it all as well as some of the more difficult elements of the Christian experience, namely grief and suffering. We would recommend going to see this film for yourself but don’t go alone, see it with a friend or a group of friends, stew over the film deeper than taking it at surface level.
If you’re not into a slow, reflective film with challenging themes, beautiful cinematography and great performances, Silence is definitely not for you. But if you wish to be challenged, to reflect on your faith in Christ and to learn a little bit about what Christians had to endure in Japan to keep the faith, then this is your cup of tea – a bittersweet tea, mind you.
“My whole life has been movies and religion, that’s all, nothing else” Martin Scorsese. If there is any movie that invites theological dialogue surely it’s Scorses’s new film ‘Silence’.
