The Chicago-Detroit Jesuits, along with the IN Network, an online platform supported by creative media company Loyola Productions, is launching a Lenten film series via the original show The INNdustry with Sister Rose. Hosted by Daughter of St. Paul Sister Rose Pacatte, the seasonal series features film and TV clips that many will know from mainstream programming to highlight Lenten themes and foster reflection and conversation.

“The Lenten Film Series offers viewers a unique, media-driven way to journey through Lent using a variety of TV and film programs as meaningful spiritual guideposts,” said Sister Rose. “The breadth and depth of the programming across genres and subject matter is inspiring. Loyola Productions has done a wonderful job producing the series that will make Lent more meaningful for those who watch one or all of the episodes.”

Each of the seven episodes includes interviews with the media makers, including writer Barbara Hall ("Homeland," "Judging Amy," "Joan of Arcadia"), director Tom Shadyac ("Bruce Almighty," "Liar Liar," "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "I Am"), actor Martin Sheen ("The West Wing," "Apocalypse Now," "The Way") and actor/director Emilio Estevez ("Bobby," "The Way").

Questions for reflection and commentary are also offered. Premiering online on Ash Wednesday, the Lenten Film Series releases six more episodes every Wednesday afterward, taking viewers right up to the Paschal Triduum. The Lenten Film Series is ideal for use in prayer groups, young adult ministry, retreats, classrooms, and individual Lenten preparation for Easter.

“Through the Lenten Film Series with Sister Rose, we meet the faithful where they are, online and through social media,” says Jesuit Father Eddie Siebert, executive producer for Loyola Productions. “Pope Francis himself said the Internet is a gift from God that facilitates communication, and we are proud to be offering online Lenten programming that we think Pope Francis would welcome.”

Jeremy Langford, Communications Director of the Chicago-Detroit Province Jesuits, says, “To help people discover/re-discover Lent in a new way, we are excited to partner with the IN Network and Sr. Rose, both experts at finding God in today’s media. This unique Lenten Film Series is special because it uses carefully chosen movie and TV clips, combined with thoughtful introductions and reflection questions by Sr. Rose, to help viewers delve deeper into this sacred religious season and be surprised where their journeys lead them.”
