Heroes of the Silver Screen

Presented by Skywalker.

The bard of the modern age, the filmmaker, needs to be able to tell a good story in order to get us to spend our hard-earned dollars at the movies. One successful way to get the story across is to use the archetype of the Hero’s Journey, familiar to many people through the works of Joseph Campbell. Using examples from popular movies, we will identify the steps of the Hero’s Journey and meet allies, tricksters, threshold guardians, and other characters that our hero encounters along the way.
