Tucson Atheists Monthly Movie Night

  • May 27, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • Sahara Appartments

The May movie will be episodes 3 & 4 of The Power Of Myth, a 6-part PBS series of interviews between Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell. Each episode is an hour long. From Wikipedia:

  • Episode 3: The First Storytellers (first broadcast June 23, 1988 on PBS)

Animal memories, harmonization with body and life-cycle, consciousness vs. its vehicle, killing for food, story: “The Buffalo's Wife,” buffalo massacre, initiation ritual, rituals diminishing, crime increasing, artists, the Shaman, the center of the world.

  • Episode 4: Sacrifice and Bliss (first broadcast June 24, 1988 on PBS)

Chief Seattle, the sacred Earth, agricultural renewal, human sacrifice, sacrifice of the Mass, transcendence of death, story: “The Green Knight,” societal dictates vs. following bliss, “hidden hands” guiding life's work.

 

After the movie, we'll head over to the Epic Cafe (745 N 4th St, at University) to talk about the movie and anything else we feel like.

The Sahara Apartments are on Stone a block and a half south of Speedway, on the west side. There is plenty of parking right there. Note that the theater is through a locked security gate. Someone from our group will be waiting inside the gate to buzz everyone in, but you must be there by 6:30 as that's when the movie will start. I recommend that you arrive a few minutes early!

    I haven't seen the first two parts. Will that be a problem, do you think?

      No, I don't think it'll be an issue; the episodes are pretty stand-alone. I can lend you the first two to watch on your own if you like.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
