Gnosticism in Cinema - from the Matrix to Snow White

  • Nov 18, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • CRS

The Gnostic Restoration has not been limited to the ongoing work of Gnostic Churches that have emerged over the past century. The Gnostic impulse - the call of Sophia Achamoth to a world of spiritual degeneration and crass materialism - has also influenced modern cinema in profound ways.

Many have noted the Gnostic ideas in the Matrix, but Hollywood has been a hotbed of Gnostic-themed movies. Join us for a discussion of Gnosticism in contemporary movies such as The Truman Show, The Matrix, Pleasantville, Vanilla Sky, Exiztenz, The Game, Snow White, and several movies based on the works of Philip K. Dick, exploring the classical Gnostic ideas that permeate these films and how these ideas can help inform our understanding and spiritual practice.
