How to use this film
The film has four sequences:
- A brief introduction (4:50 min).
- Hope for Humanity (11:30 min).
- Hope for Europe and the World (16:40 min).
- Hope for the Churches (17:00 min).

The four sequences in the film aim to set up a dialogue and debate around the theme of hope. They are therefore best viewed in groups to share thoughts and discussions after each sequence.

We suggest that before watching a sequence a moderator is appointed to facilitate the debate and that a note-taker should gather the insights gained in the discussions.

All in all, 2 to 2½ hours should therefore be set aside to watch the various parts of the film and also to reflect on its content. Everyone should be equipped with a pen and paper for note-taking during the showing. To help your discussion, the following guiding questions can be followed:

Hope for Humanity
- Which words and concepts mentioned in the sequence do you particularly agree with?
- Are there words or statements that you disagree with?
- In your view, which is the most important contribution?

Share your answers to the guideline questions above with your neighbour (5 mins) and pay special attention to any concepts, words or opinions that you think are missing from the film.
Share your thoughts about the concepts that you think are missing from the film’s statements with the whole group.

Hope for Europe and the World
- Which words and concepts mentioned in the sequence do you particularly agree with?
- Are there words or statements that you disagree with?
- In your view, what is the future hope for Europe and the world?

Share your answers to the guideline questions above with your neighbour (5 mins) and pay special attention to any concepts, words or opinions that you think are missing from the film.

Hope for the Churches
- Which words and concepts mentioned in the sequence do you particularly agree with?

or opinions that you think are missing from the film.
Share your thoughts about the concepts that you think are missing from the film’s statements with the whole group.

Final discussion
All participants now have 4-5 mins to reflect on the three most important concepts, words or insights that came forward after watching and discussing the film. Each person presents their three responses,in turn. During this final process the notetaker should note the insights gained.
The aim now is for the note-taker to gather the main ideas on hope from the whole group.
