Culture Films Series

Syncretism

Celebrating our 10th year, the 2020–21 Culture Films Series will focus on the theme “Syncretism,” the combining of cultural elements. In collaboration with the Wolf Humanities Center’s annual topic, “Choice,” we will showcase films that bring this concept of active selection, adaptation, or rejection of beliefs or practices to light. Sunday film screenings begin at 2pm ET and are one-time events, with a Q&A discussion with the director, producer, or cultural expert to follow. 

Second Sunday Culture Films

For the first time, each Culture Films screening will be virtual and entirely Pay What You Wish—we invite visitors near and far to join the conversation.
