New Course: "Mythology & The Movies"
Beginning on Saturday, March 18 at 2 pm MST for 8 weeks, we will read my scene by scene books and discuss the semiotics of seven great films: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, Apocalypse Now, Alien, Blade Runner, The Shining and Videodrome. These films are all motivated by the mythological imagination and we will get down into them and chew on them.
The influence of Gnosticism on Videodrome. The Golden Bough and Apocalypse Now. The Hero with a Thousand Faces and Star Wars. Gilgamesh and Blade Runner. Alien and the Descent to the Mothers. The Shining and the astral plane.
We will discuss ALL of these ideas and much much more! Come play with us for 8 weeks beginning on March 18. Here is the link to enroll:
