Film and Theology | The Hunger Games

Substitution. Love. Sacrifice. Courage. Themes not only found in the Gospel, but in Gary Ross’ adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games. In this modern retelling of Theseus and the Minotaur, we are introduced to characters like Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mallark, who at first glance seems to embody these qualities, yet their own self-interest seems to overshadow these noble traits. As Christians, laying down one’s life for another is glorious, but what are we to make of self-preservation being portrayed as the ultimate good? Join us Friday night, September 14th, as we watch and discuss The Hunger Games.

The movie we will be viewing is rated PG-13 for “intense violent thematic material and disturbing images – all involving teens,” and childcare will not be provided. Free popcorn, coke, and mucho more will be on hand though, so don’t miss the return of Film and Theology at The 400! You can RSVP here.
