Religion in Contemporary Thought and Cinema

Paragraph, Volume 42, Issue 3

Edited by Libby Saxton and Anat Pick

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Paragraph Special Issues

  • Covers a wide range of cinemas from the United States, France, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia and China.
  • Juxtaposes responses to Judaeo-Christian thought with Islamic feminism, theology from the Arab-speaking world and Buddhist ethics.
  • Situates recent films within traditions of idiosyncratic thinking about God that stretch back to the work of Søren Kierkegaard and Simone Weil.
  • Challenges the established (male, white) canon of religious film criticism and filmmakers, from Carl Theodor Dreyer and Robert Bresson to Bruno Dumont and Lars von Trier.
