Catechetical Films

For Catholic junior/senior high schools students (and other students of good will)
  1. The Apostle (following Christ, human imperfection, forgiveness)
  2. Catch Me If You Can (personal identity, family, relationships)
  3. Contact (faith and reason)
  4. Gattaca (determinism, manipulation of the human)
  5. Groundhog Day (destiny, saying Yes to reality)
  6. Henry Poole Is Here (sacramental economy, meaning, relationships)
  7. King of California (the meaning of 'success,' the nature of paternity, what constitutes a living personality)
  8. Millions (communion of saints, generosity, eternity)
  9. Signs (faith and reason, what faith is/is not)
  10. Strictly Ballroom (the human heart, how the gaze of another transforms one, choosing fear or life)
  11. The Truman Show (the artificiality of modernity and the nature of media; Plato's "Allegory" too)
  12. Unbreakable (fatherhood, acknowledging a plan for one's life, pursuing questions to their end)
