What does it mean to live a good life? How do we reconcile our personal interests with our duty to others? Do the ends justify the means? What kind of person ought we to be? More than just philosophical questions, these are questions about how to live that regularly come up in movies.  Some of the best of them confront us with hypothetical scenarios that provide us with an occasion to reflect on our moral values and what it means to live a good life. Join PDF@Zoetropolis from January till April as we watch and discuss a series of films that explore what it means to live a moral life. If you like movies, are interested in opportunities for connection and conversation, and you find yourself wondering about what it means to be a good person, join us at Zoetropolis, the third Thursdays of the month, as we explore movies and our moral lives.
