Lloyd Vogel is an investigative journalist who receives an assignment to profile Fred Rogers, aka Mr. Rogers. He approaches the interview with skepticism, as he finds it hard to believe that anyone can have such a good nature. But Roger's empathy, kindness and decency soon chips away at Vogel's jaded outlook on life, forcing the reporter to reconcile with his own painful past.
Film and Theology is designed to create discussion and dialogue as we engage with media & culture in film. Every Film and Theology starts with watching a movie on the big screen and then a short time of discussion at the end. At Westside, our worldview is shaped by the Bible and the Christian faith, and therefore, we watch movies through that lens. In our view, we're looking at what needs to be received, rejected, or redeemed.
We recognize that not everyone who attends these movies is a Christian, but everyone is welcome to attend and engage in discussion, share thoughts, and ask questions in an open, informal, and honest space.
