Movie Of The Week: Joseph Campbell Inspired Film ‘Finding Joe’
Finding Joe, a celebrity-filled journey through Campbell's 'Hero's Journey,' opens this week.
Finding Joe is a film about famed mythologist Joseph Campbell, and combines celebrity interviews with live-action enactments of classic mythical tales as a way to guide us through what Campbell called the ‘Hero’s Journey.’ Finding Joe aims to show the audience how this philosophy is not only relevant today, but is the ‘narrative for how to live a fully realized life.’
Last week, we spoke with producer and director Patrick Takaya Solomon about his film. He said:
This movie is a tailored fit for anyone who has a shred of creativity in their bones! There is a lot on information packed in there. I think the big intellectual lesson is that you are on the same journey as every hero and heroine from every story ever told and every story that will ever be told. However, it’s not so much what you learn, it’s more about what you feel. It galvanizes your courage and makes you feel like you can do anything.
