The Great Divorce

Enlightening and provocative, C.S Lewis’ “The Great Divorce asks the question, “what would you choose over heaven?”. Filled with fable and allegory, we find each persona; “The Moralist”, “The Addict”, “The Self-loving Mother”, and others reveal ultimately what is most valuable to them. 

In the summer of 2016, Artist Reformation and Calvary: the Hill sought to collaborate with 7 filmmakers to create vignettes (less than 10 minutes, more than 4) from the storyline of C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce. Each vignette was complemented with a sermon at Calvary: the Hill in the Autumn of 2016.

We also hosted a screening of the project in its entirety with a dialogue with the filmmakers at Seattle's Northwest Film Forum in August of 2016. With hopes of furthering the project, AR and Calvary: the Hill took the project to Paris, France. Through invitations, the vignettes were shown at a nearby venue.

Our vision for the completed films is to not sell them in any medium, although we do hope to make them available broadly (digitally) for free to any churches or groups who would like to make use of them.
