CHICAGO (CNS) — The Chicago-Detroit Jesuit province is teaming up with Loyola Productions’ online IN Network for a seven-part Lenten film series to make its debut on seven Wednesdays in Lent, starting with Ash Wednesday.
The series will be part of the program "The INNdustry," hosted by Sister Rose Pacatte, a Daughter of St. Paul.
Each episode of "The INNdustry" will feature clips from films and television series, along with interviews and commentary from producers and directors behind those movies and shows.
The episodes will highlight Lenten themes and foster reflection and conversation. Questions for reflection and commentary are also offered.
The film series can be used in prayer groups, young adult ministry, retreats, classrooms, and individual Lenten preparation for Easter. A promotional video and press kit materials can be viewed at http://getinn.tv/lent-2014-epk.
The schedule: March 5 — "Redemption of the Prosecutor," a documentary short; March 12 — "Champions of Faith: Baseball Edition" with former major leaguer Mike Sweeney; March 19 — "The Way" with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez; March 26 — "Desert Wedding," about how a "bridezilla" deals with the unexpected; April 2 — "I Am," director Tom Shadyac’s autobiographical documentary; April 9 — "Joan of Arcadia" with creator Barbara Hall; April 16 — "Small Change," about how one boy’s action gives hope to a family in crisis.
The IN Network — short for Ignatian News Network — is an online platform specifically designed for the global Jesuit family, presenting news, culture, lifestyle and original series content through a uniquely Ignatian lens. The IN Network has an App available for iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. An Android version is coming soon.
