The Pasquerilla Spiritual Center film series to feature 'God in the Box'

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- On March 27, the Center of Ethics and Religious Affairs, along with several student organizations including Westminster Presbyterian Fellowship, Hillel, Lutheran Campus Ministry, the Vedic Society and Unitarian Universalist Students will screen the acclaimed documentary, "God in the Box."

This film, which received its world premiere at the 2011 Heartland Film Festival in Indianapolis, follows filmmaker Nathan Lang and his crew across America as they explore the diverse and curious ways people "see" God in their mind's eye ― through the lens of this amazing Box. Filmmakers also interview scholars, theologians, mythologists and an archaeologist who have joined the search for the origins of how we see God. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions and speak with Lang, who will lead a discussion after the screening.

"God in the Box" is part of the Center for Ethics and Religious Affairs’ Breaking the Box: Exploring Religious Stigmas and Misconceptions Film Series. The series runs from February to April and includes light hearted comedies as well as eye-opening documentaries. Through this series, the Center for Ethics and Religious Affairs hopes to encourage students to break out of their own faith boxes and explore their own and others’ religious and spiritual traditions from various viewpoints. God in the Box will be screened in Memorial Lounge in The Pasquerilla Spiritual Center and is open to students, staff, faculty and the community.
