Church and Media
Over Christmas we are bound to watch several films. But what choices are we making and what effect, if any, does this have on our faith. Richard Leonard SJ is a specialist in cinema studies and Director of the Australian Catholic Film and Television Office. He is also author of the book, Movies that Matter and argues that the media is a very important industry and should be examined. He spoke with Pat Coyle who suggested that when it comes to media, the Church is simply out of touch.
