This is the first of a series of documentary films to look at life and mental health from a different perspective. After the film there will be a general discussion on what thoughts and insights you may have gathered from watching the film. Discussions are moderated by CICCIC Director Andrew Knutt.
About This Film
Finding Joe is an exploration of famed Mythologist Joseph Campbell’s studies and their continuing impact on our culture. Through interviews with visionaries from a variety of fields interwoven with enactments of classic tales by a sweet and motley group of kids, the film navigates the stages of what Campbell dubbed The Hero’s Journey: the challenges, the fears, the dragons, the battles, and the return home as a changed person. Rooted in deeply personal accounts and timeless stories, Finding Joe shows how Campbell’s work is relevant and essential in today’s world and how it provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life – or as Campbell would simply state, how to “follow your bliss”. — (C) Official Site
Interviews come from show business such as Mike Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac, film director Catherine Hardwicke, screenwriter/producer Akiva Goldman and actress-writer Rashida Jones.
Naturally, Deepak Chopra shows up along with professional skakeboarder Tony Hawk, surfing superstar Laird Hamilton and Robert Walter, president of the Joseph Campbell Foundation.
