Thanks to Netflix and other streaming services, TV and movies are more a part of our lives and culture than ever before. So what does the Torah say, not only about what we watch, but how we watch?
In Season 2 of our very own popular series (hey, if Netflix can do it…) we’ll be looking at a few more of the most popular, enigmatic, silly and challenging online series and reflect on Torah perspectives on the topics and issues that they raise.
Join the Academy and Rabbi Sam Thurgood in looking at a variety of movies and genres – from documenting the impact of social media (The Social Dilemma) to monster movies (Love and Monsters), from checkmate (The Queen’s Gambit) to Japanese anime (Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood) and underwater octopodal wonders (My Octopus Teacher).
Because sometimes art reflects reality, and sometimes, if we allow it, it recreates reality.
