Women's Visionary Film: Magic, Myth and Mystery
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARW 6450 1.00 - 3.00
Women's sacred experience and beliefs too rarely find expression in contemporary culture via film. The inspiring new genre of women's visionary films, created primarily by women about women from diverse cultures of our global community, will be viewed or read for their discussion of sacred themes. The mystical vision of many of these works is embodied in the daily lives and sacred stories of ordinary persons as well as mythical beings. Films such as Goddess Remembered, Sorceress, Daughters of the Dust, Monsoon Wedding, Frida, Blossoms of Fire, and Whale Rider will be reviewed.
