(video clip) The Hero's Journey in Film
We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we will be with all the world....Joseph Campbell
A 10-minute exploration of the human journey of the hero as seen through the eyes of some of cinemas most celebrated heroes and legends. A film by Ciaran Michael Vejby, inspired by Joseph Campbell's "Hero With a Thousand Faces."
