“Thank you for such a terrific series of conversations set up so beautifully with your short films.” We had a fantastic time this weekend at the Friends Conference for Religion and Psychology. Comment from participant.
Very thrilled that The Camelot Project has included a link to our #film “Percy Grows Up” as part of their page on Percival and Grail media. Our link is toward bottom of the page. https://d.lib.rochester.edu/camelot-project/theme/perceval
I studied Asian theatre forms in my grad school. Loved these amazing and powerful styles! Some viewers of my films have noted the influence — seen in the stillness of postures and mask-like faces of the dolls. (Noh mask 18 c.)
Our current film is the Grimm tale, The Two Travelers. In it many creatures help the hero (duck, stork, bee, horse) Here two crows offer guidance. Marie Louise Von Franz offers a wonderful analysis in “Shadow and Evil in Fairy Tales.”
The archetypal journey of the hero begins in many different forms, always with a kind of secret, unconscious knowledge which the hero him/herself doesn’t know she possesses. David Hart, The Psychology of a #Fairytale Relief of Inanna/Ishtar
