Silents Of God

Silents Of God

by Terry Lindvall
     
 

Covering the historical period from 1908 to 1925, this study traces the process of religious response to film as a prophetic vision, a series of great debates, the articulation of film as a handmaiden to church work, and the great divorce of church and cinema, eventuating in a religious posture and emphasis on rigid censorship rather than creative dialogue.See more details below
