Mrs. Harris Goes to Parish, Directed by Anthony Fabian
American artist, Susan Watkins observed that “Clothing is our most intimate environment.” We all get dressed, but how often do we think about what our clothes say?
This screening and discussion of a “Delightful comedy about the many meanings of the clothes we choose to wear and what these choices say about our lives and values” will give us that opportunity.

More about the film from the Spirituality and Practice review:
“Every day we make choices about what to wear. Our clothes communicate to the world information about our age, sex, and class. They reflect our mood, personality, origin, occupation, tastes, and erotic yearnings. They indicate whether we are comfortable conforming to societal standards. Clothing creates community, signaling that we belong to a particular group. In turn, it can create borders and boundaries between people.
To change clothes can be an important way to change one’s way of being in the world. Clothing doesn’t just shape identity. It reveals our identity to the people we meet. We all get dressed, but how often do we think about what our clothes say?
