Presentation Title: “Remote Virtue, A ‘How To’ for Intentional Christian Viewing”
Date: 11/16/15 Time: 8:00-9:00 pm, EST
Description: Visual Literacy is essential because viewer discretion is always advised. We all know that the moving images we see in films and television programs impact us. So why have we not developed the tools to help us understand the effects of moving images? Like the ingredients label on a food package, the structure and form of a moving image narrative can be “read” to help understand what’s really going on in the media we’re intaking. As more informed viewers, we can then become more virtuous, using discretion in how we control our relationship with films and TV. Remote Virtue is a “how to” for becoming an informed viewer, with discussions of media convergence, Christian film criticism, redemptive narratives, and the truth in the moving image as well as some contemporary films and programs. This free presentation may be viewed by an individual or group of any size in a single feed.
