In celebration of the opening of Martin Scorsese’s 25-year passion project Silence, IU Cinema presents four films of men whose faith embody their lives. The themes of faith and religion have influenced his work since the 1970s. Scorsese’s Italian-American Catholic upbringing affected everything about him, “the way I breathe, the way I think,” as he told the New York Times. And, of course, it affected the films. Critic A.O. Scott once wrote that Scorsese approaches filmmaking as “a priestly avocation, a set of spiritual exercises embedded in technical problems.” We are grateful for his perseverance and faith—in his stories, the cinematic experience, the medium, and his characters.
