by Chris Sopczynski


The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television and Theatre, Department of Theology and DeBartolo Performing Arts Center will host “Films and Faith Weekend” on Feb. 25 and 26 in the Browning Cinema. This year’s festival theme is interfaith and feature films including “Vision – from the Life if Hildegard von Bingen,” Feb. 25 at 7 p.m.; “Ajami,” Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m., and “A Serious Man,” Feb. 26 at 9:30 p.m.

“Vision – from the Life if Hildegard von Bingen” tells the story of Benedictine nun Hildegard von Bingen, accomplished writer, musician and scientist, who drew from her visions of God to command and advance the role of women within the Church in the 12th century. “Ajami” explores an Israeli community in which Palestinians, Israeli Arabs,

Christians and Jews try to coexist in a powerful drama that examines the intersecting lives of its diverse residents. “A Serious Man” is the Coen Brothers’ story of a physics professor who seeks out his rabbi for answers after his wife suddenly demands a divorce.

Tickets are $6 for the general public, $5 for faculty and staff, $4 for seniors and $3 for children and students. They can be purchased at the ticket office, by calling 574-631-2800 or online at
