Course Content (Syllabus)
A dialogue of Orthodox theology with the art of cinema. In this case the focus is both on ontology and on technology. Cinema functions as a "language" as the center of gravity of an expanded interdisciplinarity, allowing for awareness and much more understanding of the story. And this is the history, this civilization, which is the womb in which the Logos has been enriched, and the word of Christian theology has developed.
