The Divine Plan

Thursday, April 25, 2019 @ 7PM

Reagan, John Paul II and the Dramatic End of the Cold War

In his new documentary, The Divine Plan: Reagan, John Paul II and the Dramatic End of the Cold War, director Robert Orlando reveals one of the least-known stories of the twentieth century. An unlikely pair, a president and a pope, who combine deep faith with political acumen and high-octane star power, and a plot that involves two assassination attempts, KGB scheming, CIA intrigue, and the final act to topple the Soviet Empire.

To solve the mystery, Orlando interrogates a crack team of world-renowned scholars, politicians, historians and journalists including Paul Kengor, Douglas Brinkley, Richard Allen, John O’Sullivan, Craig Shirley, Steve Kotkin, George Weigel, Bishop Robert Barron, Anne Applebaum, Monika Jablonska, Marek Jan Chodakiewicz, HW Brands, and Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Probing deep into the shadows of the Cold War, they expose events supporting a vivid and uncommon mission during that tumultuous time.

Post Screening discussion and Q&A with director, Robert Orlando and author Paul Kengor.

Tickets: $15

*Student rush tickets will be available an hour before the event for $10 with a valid current student ID
