Title: The First Vision Goes to the Movies
Dr. Casey Griffiths, Brigham Young University faculty, Religious Education
Date and Time: Thursday, February 13, 2020 @ 2pm, HBLL Level 1, Alice Louise Reynolds Auditorium
Abstract: In the 21st Century most people encounter Joseph Smith’s First Vision through the medium of film. How has the First Vision been depicted in film throughout the history of the Church? How did the filmmakers approach the translation of this sacred story from one medium to another? And how has film influenced our perception of Joseph Smith’s grand theophany?
Come join us this Thursday for what will surely be an educational and inspirational opportunity to learn more about the tradition of this seminal event in Church history!
