A New View Film Series
Each of us has a unique view through which we see the world. Shaped by our experiences, culture, and familial identity, this view forms our beliefs, values, and way of life. A New View Film Series will journey outside everyday life to explore new worldviews through the screening of four films. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with the audience.
The series will take place every other month from September 2018–March 2019 at Butler University's Eidson-Duckwall Recital Hall (located adjacent to Robertson Hall). Doors open at 6:30 PM, film screening begins at 7:00 PM.
The series is free and open to the public.
Service to Man

In the turbulent spring of 1968, an ambitious white Jewish student from Brooklyn finds himself an outcast at Meharry, Nashville’s legendary all-black medical school. There, he and his peers struggle to overcome intricate mysteries of medicine, their demanding professors, and their own differences in their quest to, ultimately, become healers in the Service to Man.
The Dhamma Brothers

East meets West in the Deep South. An overcrowded maximum-security prison—the end of the line in Alabama's correctional system—is dramatically changed by the influence of an ancient meditation program. The Dhamma Brothers tells a dramatic tale of human potential and transformation as it closely follows and documents the stories of the prison inmates at Donaldson Correction Facility who enter into this arduous and intensive program.
The Lemon Tree
Thursday, January 24, 2019, 7:00 PM
Salma Zidane lives on the Palestinian West Bank in a small house with lemon trees on her property, planted by her great grandparents. Unfortunately, when the Israeli minister of defense builds a neighboring house, the trees are deemed a security risk. A legal battle ensues over the trees, which creates an unexpected new friendship between Salma and the minister's wife. A story of conflict and hope, what resolution will the characters come to?
The Heart of Nuba
Thursday, March 28, 2019, 7:00 PM
In the war-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan, American Dr. Tom Catena seeks to provide care and serve the needs of a forgotten people at Mother of Mercy Hospital. As the region is bombed relentlessly by indicted war criminal Omar Al-Bashar, only two things remain constant: Dr. Tom’s faith and his enduring love for the Nuba people.
The New View Film Series is co-sponsored by the Center for Interfaith Cooperation.
