He was asked about how he squares his work as a Jesuit with all his work on cinema and about both his attitude and that of the Church to on-screen sex and violence. Richard’s recent book, Movies that Matter: reading film through the lens of faith, will be launched by Peter Sheridan on Wednesday 20 February at the Uí Chadhain Theatre in the Arts Building, Trinity College, at 7.30pm. On Tuesday evening at 7.30pm, he will be a guest of Slí Eile at one of their monthly debates. For more details about the Slí Eile event, contact Fernando Galligo at 086-1021490 or the Slí Eile office (01-8880606).
