6:30 p.m. | Upton Hall 230

Zachary E. Malone, lecturer of English, hosts this film and lecture series. Preceding each film will be a short, 10-15 minute introduction on context, symbolism, and relevant themes pertaining to the film. A Q&A will follow each film. 

All students, staff, and faculty are welcome. 

For more information about this particular film, please visit the Criterion Collection where you'll find the following description along with a critical essay:

In a series of simple and joyous vignettes, director Roberto Rossellini and co-writer Federico Fellini lovingly convey the universal teachings of the People’s Saint: humility, compassion, faith, and sacrifice. Gorgeously photographed to evoke the medieval paintings of Saint Francis’s time, and cast with monks from the Nocera Inferiore Monastery, The Flowers of St. Francis is a timeless and moving portrait of the search for spiritual enlightenment.



Open to: students, faculty, staff
