The Religion and Spirituality Collection

A wide-ranging collection of over 40 films from four companies that explore the many facets of religion and spirituality around the world.

The Religion and Spirtuality Collection explores the many different ways that people around the world practice and express their spirituality. The collection includes the IN THE LIGHT OF REVERENCE series, about Native Americans struggling to protect their sacred places and WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE, the six-part history of evangelical Christianity in the United States. Other aspects of Christianity are explored in LEFT BEHIND IN LOUISIANA (evangelcialism on the Gulf Coast), SONS OF PERDITION (teenages escaping the secretive FLDS group. and THE VIRGIN, THE COPTS AND ME, about Egypt's Copt community. Several classic titles from Kartemquin Films explores grassroots Catholicism in Chicago in the 1960s. The collection has  especially rich content about Islam, including the ISLAM UNKNOWN series, films about Islam and women (including A VEILED REVOLUTION, CRIMES OF HONOR and DISHONORED), and the fascinating story of Leopold Weiss's conversion to Islam. ANGRY MONK tells the story of Tibetan monk Gendun Choephel; IN THE NAME OF GOD looks the Hindu fundamentalism; THE DHAMMA BROTHERS tells the story of the influence of an ancient meditation program on a maximum security prison.

This remarkable collection is a must have for any program teaching about religion and spirituality around the world today.
