What happens when an anthropologist and cinematographer team up to capture the birth of a new religion on camera?
At 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 18 in Stager Hall's Stahr Auditorium, F&M Assistant Professor of Religious Studies Rachel Feldman, along with her cinematographer co-director Lia Tarachansky, will screen a preview of their forthcoming documentary film “The Children of Noah,” taking the viewer inside of their scholarly and artistic process.
Feldman will lecture and discuss her ongoing ethnographic fieldwork in the Philippines, where she is following the emergence of a new Judaic faith alongside a growing theocratic movement in Israel. Feldman and Tarachansky will problematize what it means to study and represent religious subjectivities on camera.
"I would love to have faculty and staff in the audience!"
