The Martian
at the Movies with Kate Burkart
May 28 Memorial Day Weekend

Mark Watney, a botanist on an expedition to Mars, is stranded after a disaster when his crewmates, believing him dead, leave the planet without him. Now he must improvise and innovate to survive. The Martian is an epic tale of ingenuity and intelligence, as well as optimistic vision of the need for cooperation (and the value of a sense of humor). Praised for its scientific accuracy, the book (written by Andy Weir) and film (directed by Ridley Scott) present a moving story that transcends the science-fiction genre to connect with the heart.

Watch the film and/or read the book before May 28, when we travel to Mars (and a little closer to home!) with study leader, Kate Burkart. (Note: Both the film and the book contain some harsh language.)

Kate Burkart minored in film at Penn State and has delighted St. Philip Church & Society classmembers with her theological perspective on media since 2002.
