Summary

Much has been written in recent years about the relationship between young people and the influence of film on their developing worldview. However, precious little empirical research has been undertaken in this area. In this book, Jack Gabig presents his detailed and exhaustive research that will inform, inspire and challenge all who work with young people as well as those who are involved in the research of cultural studies.Dr Gabig presents an ethnographic study of young people in a particular US parish. Welding his findings with wider research into the genre of film, he explores how notions of identity and community are influenced, even forged, through interaction with the media of film. He details the manner in which language and behavior are shaped in friendship groups. Crucially, Dr Gabig shows how young Christians use film to find meaning and expression to their own faith and that of others.
