‘SILENCE, WE PREACH!’ – MIR EXHIBITION @ Musée International de la Réforme
Feb 13 @ 10:00 am – Aug 30 @ 5:00 pm
'SILENCE, WE PREACH!' - MIR EXHIBITION @ Musée International de la Réforme

Famous film directors have used these Protestant priests as dramatic resources and fascinating characters, and the MIR screens an original montage of about twenty minutes made up of eight extracts from classic films.  Pastors are seen through the lens of directors such as Michael Haneke, Charlie Chaplin, Alain Resnais and John Huston.  Alongside, five gowns designed by Albertine will also be displayed in the Salon. They reflect the typology listed by French theologian André Gounelle, which underlines the specific ways ministers carry out their mission: as a Prophet, a Shepherd, a Leader, a Spiritual Director or a Priest.

Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Closed on Monday
