What moves me most profoundly about art as narrative (whether it’s literature or film or dance or theatre or music) is its ability to communicate our human experience, its ability to reflect our shared human experience, and its ability to raise our consciousness. What that means is every book I read, every film I watch, every piece of art I see has the potential to deepen my consciousness, to reflect a larger truth about who I am, to - in short - make me a better person. In this episode, I focus on the narrative of film and how it enables us to learn lessons, remember the lessons of the past, find heroes, see ourselves in the characters, and perhaps know ourselves better. As part of our individual and collective consciousness, stories tell us about our culture, our history. They reveal our strengths and weaknesses; they make the tragedies more palatable and the victories more epic. Join me for a discussion of this, for a summary of my favorite films that reflect a consciousness about animals, and for a description of what I think is the most beautiful and important movie ever made.
