The C.S. Lewis Festival hosts a luncheon with Emmy Award winning film makers Chip Duncan and David Crouse at Stafford’s Bay View Inn in Bay View. The film makers will show sneak preview clips of their newest documentary on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.

The film, A Quest for Meaning: Myth, Imagination & Faith in the lives and literature of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, engages scholars from various spiritual and academic viewpoints while challenging viewers to draw their own conclusions about the meaning of life and the role that mythology and imagination play in determining belief.

The documentary includes insights from Dr. Reza Aslan, Dr. Christopher Mitchell, Dr. Verlyn Fleiger, Dr. Tom Shippey, Rev. Dr. Michael Ward and the noted quantum physicist Rev. Dr. John Polkinghorne.
