Friday Reflection Activity

After watching the short film entitled “Most” or “Bridge” in Czech, access this link and read the short explanation of the short film. Answer the following questions:

  1. We meet a number of characters in passing in this movie. Beyond Lada and his father, whose story most intrigues you? Why? Answer in less than 4 sentences.
  2. One thing nearly all of the periphery characters in the movie have in common is that they areoblivious to what is going on around them. The troubled girl is more concerned about feeding her habits than about her sister’s anguish over her condition. The college students are thinking only about having a good time. Brad from America is only focused on his broken heart. Read Colossians 3:12-17Why is it so difficult for us to turn our attention away from ourselves and onto the needs of others? Answer in less than 7 sentences.
  3. We see both the father and son finding joy in the seemingly mundane—on the job, drinking coffee and tea, bedtime, fishing. After Lada’s death, the father is, as expected, dejected and downcast. Read 1 Peter 1:3-9 Does God promise those that follow him an easy path? Answer in 3 sentences.
  4. Why was the short film titled this way? Answer in 1 sentence.
