Filmmaker screens five works, March 22 and 24

Filmmaker Nathaniel Dorsky will screen five of his works during a series of presentations on "Devotional Cinema" Tuesday and Thursday, March 22 and 24.

A short-term visiting fellow this spring in the Humanities Council, Dorsky has been making films for 40 years. They often are short meditations on transitory natural phenomena and have been referred to as "lyrical epiphanies of sudden uncanny beauty."

The showings in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St., will be followed by discussions with Dorsky. Here is the schedule:

• 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 22 -- "The Visitation," "Alaya" and "Threnody."

• 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 24 -- "Love's Refrain" and "Arbor Vitae."

The series is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religion, Humanities Council, Department of Religion, Film Studies Committee and Program in Visual Arts.
