Abstract

Movies are not a uniquely American art form, but through most of the twentieth century, the period roughly containing the creation and development of this form, the American studio system was the dominant creator and distributor of films. Consequently, the issues and problems surrounding the depictions of spirituality in film and the integration of spirituality in the creation of it have been highly informed and influenced by American religious assumptions and practices.
