“If every unfolding we experience takes us further along in life, then, we are truly experiencing what life is offering…”
An extraordinary film based on the best-selling novel by Yann MartelI. Life of Pi is a magical adventure story centering on Pi Patel, the precocious son of a zookeeper. As in the book by Yann Martel, the teenage Pi longs for a sign from God – any god, Christian, Hindu, Muslim – but the true higher power of “Life of Pi” is abstract. It’s the transformative power of storytelling – and the magic of movies.

“The Way” is a movie about “pilgrimage.” It explores the universal themes of loss, community and faith.
Thomas Avery is an American ophthalmologist who goes to France following the death of his adult son, killed in the Pyrenees during a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James), a Catholic pilgrimage route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. Tom’s purpose is initially to retrieve his son’s body.
However, in a combination of grief and homage to his son, Tom decides to walk the ancient spiritual trail where his son died. While walking the Camino, Tom meets others from around the world, all looking for greater meaning in their lives.
After the movie, Heather Warfield and Rabbi Dan will lead a discussion on the importance of pilgrimage and Jewish tradition. Heather Warfield is a Ph.D. candidate in Counseling and Counselor Education at North Carolina State University. She is interested in the intersection of spirituality and psychosocial identity development and has been doing research for the past two years on the topic of pilgrimage. Currently, she is writing her dissertation on the therapeutic value of pilgrimage. Participants in her study include individuals who have been on pilgrimages to address issues related to spirituality, grief, identity development, religious obligation, life transitions, and an overall search for meaning.
