This paper builds on aspects of the cultural studies perspective that understands art itself as a method of cultural analysis. This will be exemplified by focusing on how film as a cultural technique for framing and reframing the world, using its different audio-visual devices of representation, is an important contemporary agens in the process of transmitting religious motifs and concepts.
