8beats Roundtable and Screenings
March 10, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture in association with Docs/ology Films, the presenting partner of the “8beats” anthology — a series of 8 shorts by Catholic filmmakers inspired by the Beatitudes — will host a roundtable on Wednesday, March 3 featuring filmmakers and talent, moderated by David DiCerto, Interim Executive Director of The Sheen Center. They will discuss the concept behind the series and the unconventional yet timely treatment of the Beatitudes in these films which focus on humanity’s brokenness and the less-traveled roads to redemption.
For four consecutive Fridays, beginning on March 5, The Sheen Center will screen select films featured in the 8beats anthology. Trailers for each of the films are available below. Please note the films in the anthology explore mature themes that are not appropriate for children or young teens.
Roundtable guests will include:
Samuel Sorich — Executive Producer of “8beats” and a contributing filmmaker
Natalie Cordray — Claire McKenna, Producer
Sean Schiavdlin — 2AM Lullaby, Director
Deniz Demir — Simon’s Agony, Director (former Sheen Center resident artist)
