Cinema is a powerful and captivating medium for exploring the mythic, archetypal nature of our experiences as human beings. As we have done for the past five years, this class will continue exploring a rich variety of mythic themes and archetypal characters from the world of film. We will also focus on the idea of destiny as a factor in the human experience. What is this mysterious force, and how may it be guiding our lives? Participants are expected to view these films on their own before class.
