Christian author and screenwriter Brian Godawa has partnered with Movie to Movement and ChristianCinema.com to hold an online discussion about the recently released film "Noah." He will explore the film, scripture and culture.
Author of the non-fiction book, Hollywood Worldviews: Watching Films with Wisdom and Discernment, and of the Amazon bestselling Biblical fiction title "Noah Primeval," part of the "Chronicles of the Nephilim" series, Godawa has been a much sought after expert on the intersection of faith and film.
Movie to Movement, the largest Christian entertainment engagement community and ChristianCinema.com, the most visited movie website in the faith-based market, will present this definitive faith-based discussion regarding Noah on Monday, March 31 at 8 p.m. EST, online at http://www.twubs.com/TalkNoah and on Twitter at #TalkNoah.
Combining his Hollywood experience with his extensive research on Noah as presented in Jewish and Christian historical writings, Godawa will take questions about "Noah" in the context of both. Examples of questions include: Should Christian’s support films like Noah? How Biblical is this film? Can Hollywood make Biblical films? How can we find out more about characters like the Watchers and the Nephilim?
During the chat, participants will be encouraged to tweet in questions and comments about the film "Noah" with Godawa anticipating an engaging and lively discussion on faith, filmmaking, and this often misunderstood portion of scripture. Topics will include amazing, lesser known facts about Noah and this time period, The Bible, Environmentalism, the persona of Noah and his wife and daughters, and how Christians can better discern the intent of filmmakers, be better informed on scripture, and articulately engage in pop culture.
Bobby Downes from ChristianCinema.com explains, “Our mission is to provide a platform for Christian artists like Brian Godawa. This is an online discussion where Brian has graciously offered to share his knowledge of both the story of Noah and the craft of storytelling through movies. This is truly a unique opportunity for anyone who is interested in history, scripture, culture or who is just a fan of films. I know our audience will walk away informed and encouraged after this amazing event.”
“Most religious people see this film as an opportunity to engage with the culture around them and to talk about something that is normally suppressed or dismissed,” explains Godawa. “If you choose to see Noah, use this as an opportunity to express to those who have seen it what you thought of it and how your personal faith in the God of Noah has affected your life. Talk about your own interpretation of the Noah story in the Bible. Speak the truth in love. I plan to.”
