Film screening + panel discussion
Join SAMC’s Media + Communication department and a panel of theologians for Logos Mysterium, an experimental film conceived and produced by Associate Professor Ned Vankevich.
Back by popular demand after its premiere screening last year, the film is a thought-provoking exploration of the many meanings of the Greek word “logos” and how logos collides with human experience. A vast array of found footage, music, and poetic wordplay are combined to illuminate more than 60 meanings – ranging from the simple to the profound. The footage, mostly black-and-white 16mm film clips from the 1920s to 1950s, was amassed by Vankevich (a self-proclaimed “collector of extraordinary things”) over several years of research. Behind evocative images ranging from water ballet to war propaganda, varied musical styles such as 1920s folk & gospel, chanting, and a child’s music box lend a haunting humanity to the film.
