How do various films depict faith?

What types of portraits are evident for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam?


In this course, we begin with Dracula (the use of the Christian cross) and images of the apple and Eve, then end with the Holocaust portrait of Tunisia, with its intimate images of Judaism and Islam during WWII.



The films cover numerous genres, including anime and hand drawn images, such as Princess Mononoke and Persepolis, alongside the road trip, international film, and fantasy films.
