« back to classes page
Is myth dead? Does it hold any relevance in modern life or is it just nice stories we read as children? Myth is alive and well, and hiding in plain sight in movies. Come and add to the discussion with your own examples of myth in movies as we explore and discuss the Hero’s Journey with movies like the Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, and A Christmas Carol; the Trickster with movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, ‘V’, and Pirates of the Caribbean; and movies that retell myth such as Beowulf, and Rapunzel. Discover how myth can be everywhere.
