THE FORBIDDEN GOSPELS BLOG: Gnostic Cinema in Modern America. April DeConick has posted the opening remarks she gave at this film festival at Rice University in March. I'm sorry I wasn't able to attend, although I would have skipped Avatar.
HT James McGrath. In relation to Professor DeConick's remarks, see also her public lecture after the festival, Gnosticism and the transpower of the book, and also my review of her fascinating recent book The Gnostic New Age.
