Maryknoll International Film Festival - Season 2015-2016

The Theme of this Series is "Forgiveness & Tenderness Evoke Transformation."

Maryknoll International Film Festival Artists and spiritual writers through the millennia remind us of the jolting joy of forgiveness and mercy in a world that often poses “an eye for an eye” and “look out for number one” as its primary guiding values. We do all we can to protect and defend ourselves from being vulnerable and tender. In so doing, we are blind to the self-sacrificing love and mercy of our neighbor and of our God as revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. We still want a powerful and vengeful God who will protect us in our self-righteousness. When our lives are disrupted through suffering, love, terror or joy, with time we can turn to God who, through the disruption, has a chance to awaken in us a need for forgiveness, tenderness and mutual respect – so different from being defended against the other and The Other. We can begin to realize and appreciate our need for and the freedom released through forgiveness, compassion, mercy and tenderness.

The Maryknoll International Film Festival, sponsored by the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, will run for its ninth season starting September 18, 2015. Screenings are held every third Friday of the month from September 2015 to May 2016 at 7:30 p.m.
