Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus. Should he be forgiven or punished for all of eternity?  The Last Days of Judas Iscariot tells the story of a court case over the fate of Judas Iscariot.  We watch through flashbacks of his childhood and through testimonies of historical and biblical figures as each side debates the ultimate fate of Judas, whether he goes to Heaven and is forgiven or condemned to live his life in purgatory. Directed by Ernest Briggs

On view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art beginning on February 14, will be Fevzi Yazici: DARK WHITE, featuring 45 drawings by imprisoned Turkish journalist and artist Fevzi Yazici (b. 1972).  The artist served as the design director of Istanbul’s Zaman newspaper until 2016 when the Turkish government closed down the paper and Yazici and colleagues were imprisoned as part of that crackdown on freedom of the press following a coup attempt against the government party.  Yazici was originally sentenced to life in prison on terrorism charges but in 2019 the Turkish Supreme Court reduced his sentence to 11 years and 3 months. Exhibit closes on April 24, 2022.
