Additional Viewing

The following is a list of recommended films with religious themes. Many of these titles could’ve easily been shown in Cinema of Transcendence. However, due to other factors, such as running length, we will not be able to screen them at the library.

There are dozens of other films from all genres that have spiritual scenes or moments, but here we’ve listed only those where the spiritual aspect or transcendent value plays a larger role in the overall storyline.
