Alchemy, Inc., a Copley-based nonprofit offering school-based youth mentoring programs for urban adolescent males, in partnership with Christy Creative LLC, presents the Ohio premiere of Finding Joe on Friday, June 22, 6:30 p.m., at Musica, 51 East Market Street in downtown Akron. Robert Walter, President of the Joseph Campbell Foundation, will be on hand for a post-film dialogue facilitated by event emcee Heather Burns.
Finding Joe explores the studies of famed mythologist Joseph Campbell (1904-1987) and his continuing influence on our culture. Through interviews with visionaries from a variety of fields and enactments of classic tales, the film navigates the stages of Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey”: the challenges, fears, dragons and battles faced, before returning home a changed person. Through personal accounts and stories, Finding Joeshows the relevance of Campbell’s work in today’s world, which provides a narrative for living a fully realized life – or how to “follow your bliss.”
Featuring Deepak Chopra, Rashida Jones, Tony Hawk, Robert Walter, Sir Ken Robinson, Lynne Kaufman, Brian Johnson, Joseph Marshall III, Rebecca Armstrong, Chungliang Al Huang and many more. For more information on the film, visit www.findingjoethemovie.com.
