Now Showing: Of Gods and Men

Of Gods and Men is a film that recreates the final days of seven Cistercians their monastery of Tibhirine in Algeria. The 1996 jihadist uprising claimed their lives, because they refused to abandon their monastery. Monasticism meets fundamentalism. This film won the Grand Prix at Cannes this year, went on to top the box office in France, and has now been officially submitted for the Best Foreign Film Oscar.
