Hudson Institute’s Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal joins the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) to present the 2011 Summer Film Series. Hosted by EPPC Resident Scholar James Bowman and Hudson Senior Fellow William Schambra, this year we’re leaving this life entirely to see how the movies have thought about the next one—a subject that for seventy years they have found surprisingly congenial and often treated with moving sensitivity.
All movies in the series were screened on Tuesday evenings between June 28 and July 12, 2011 at Hudson Institute’s Washington headquarters. Each session began with a brief introduction and each film was followed by a discussion lead by James Bowman, film critic for The American Spectator. Click here to read his commentary.
The July 12, 2011 screening was Stairway to Heaven (A Matter of Life and Death) (1946) directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, starring David Niven, Kim Hunter, Roger Livesey, and Raymond Massey.
