Cinnabar Film Series: Columbus

Cinnabar is a monthly film series designed around hospitality and curiosity. FILMS engage our full selves. They inspire, reveal, challenge, question, and enchant us. Cinnabar was born as a micro-ministry project of Kinfolk Young Adult Ministry and is still connected to our church in that way.

What do we do? Whenever we gather, the first thing we do is share food and drinks. Our host then offers an introduction and invitation to the film they chose and we watch together, whether under the stars or in front of a twenty-foot wall. Finally, we circle up to reflect together. Our one rule is we never say a film was good or bad; we just talk about the impressions it made on us.

Coming up on April 20th: Columbus

“Are we losing interest in everyday life?”

Let’s get a few things straight…this is not a film about Christopher Columbus…or a film about Columbus, Ohio. No, this is a film about Columbus, Indiana—a place you’ve probably never heard of, but won’t soon forget. David writes:

Columbus is a film with incredible gravity. It’s so intentional, and yet lithe—rather like the modernist monoliths that dot this midwestern landscape. It’s a film that gets the possibility latent in every moment, the richness we can behold if we just slow down and stay present. Which is exactly what we always do at Cinnabar. I can’t wait to watch, but also hear, this film with you. In fact, in lieu of the trailer I don’t like, I’d refer you to the song “Meier” from the soundtrack which really sets the tone.

We’ll be back at the delightful Ligature Coffee, which is a small brown building with some wood paneling at the front. We will try to have better signs this time!
