Constructive Religious Films

by Roy Hammerling

Constructive Religious Films: The term “constructive” in the religious sense that I would like to use it, has two elements, namely, theology and ethics. Hence, the films placed under this category deal with theological themes or theology and/or ethical or moral motifs which are central to their focus. While films are complicated entities and placing them into such categories is artificial, nevertheless, such ways of examining a film can help the viewer think about how a film functions or engages the world, at least in part.
