“I felt like a man in Germany in the 1930s trying to explain why Jews ought not to be sent to the concentration camps. It all seems so utterly clear. You do not murder. You do not kill the innocent. You do not treat people like blemishes on the landscape, or communities as parcels of real estate, or nations as squares on a chessboard. Yet no group seems more distant from these facts than American (and Catholic) Americans. I have all but given up talking to Catholic audiences about Christ; I simply talk about justice, raw basic justice. I think I’ve come to understand why natural law made its way into our Church. It was simply an attempt to ask us to be, if not holy, then just. At least that.
How is it that we have become so insensitive to human life, to the wonders of this world we live in, to the mystery within us and around us.”
Jim Forest, in a letter to Thomas Merton the evoked the infamous “Letter to a Young Activist” from Thomas Merton to Jim.

Larissa Sansour’s short film Nation Estate presents a sci fi-inspired outcome to conflict in the Middle East. “I have always been intrigued by the ability of an artwork to foreshadow political change, but remain grounded solidly in its art practice,” Sansour says. “The aim has never been to offer any conclusions, but rather add a what-if scenario to the discourse in an attempt to understand a current political dialogue that seems—once again and despite solid efforts to avoid it—to have reached an impasse.”
See it September 26 and 29 as part of the MoMA Film series Films from Here: Recent Views from the Arab World.
