“Through a Class Darkly” – takes a look at religion in an unconventional way
A supernatural world full of mythical beings and musical songs set on East Carolina University’s campus comes alive tonight in Speight Auditorium.
“Through a Class Darkly,” a film written and directed by ECU professor Michael Tierno, takes a look at religion in an unconventional way. Tierno, creator of “Through a Class Darkly,” drew from his observations of religion to write the film.
“I’m obviously teaching in the Bible Belt and I’m sort of surrounded by a lot of faith based students,” said Tierno. “I’m more of an atheist myself. But I felt like it’s sometimes hard to feel all alone in the universe and these kids have faith and a lot of the rest of the world demonizes faith based people.”
