This week's (July 26) film: After Life
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 begin at 5:30 PM, at Hudson Institute, 1015 15th Street N.W., Sixth Floor, Washington, DC, (McPherson Square Metro) followed by a discussion lead by James Bowman, film critic for The American Spectator. Click here to read his commentary.
