St. Ignatius Summer Film Discussion Series

Saturday, August 22, 7:00 pm

To join in the discussion for any or all the movies in the series, or if you have any questions, please contact E.J. Potente ( and you will be sent instructions for joining the Zoom dialogue.

The final selection is Entertaining Angels, The Dorothy Day Story, a movie made in the 1990s about a figure currently being considered for sainthood: Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker Movement. The movie traces Dorothy’s development from a radical Bohemian in New York City to a deeply religious servant of the poor and oppressed. Here is the movie trailer. This film is available for streaming rental on Amazon. (Also recommended: Revolution of the Heart, a documentary about Dorothy Day that is available to stream for no cost.) Our discussion moderator is George Biniek of the Martin de Porres House community.

The second offering of the series, The Two Popes, is a very original and creative imagining of the meeting and relationship of our current Pope Francis and his predecessor, Benedict XVI, starring Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce. The trailer is linked here. This film is available via Netflix. Fr. John Coleman, S.J., will moderate our discussion.

Our first film, Harriet, is a dramatic presentation of the life and accomplishments of the heroine of the emancipation of the enslaved persons of the Southern States, Harriet Tubman, played by Cynthia Erivo. Link here to watch the movie trailer. This film is available for streaming purchase on Amazon. Teresa Moore, Professor of Media Studies at USF, will moderate our discussion.
