The Power of Myth with Bill Moyers: The Seminal PBS Series on World Mythology
Athena / Acorn Media, 2010.
These stimulating conversations between inspirational scholar Joseph Campbell and veteran journalist Bill Moyers created a national sensation when they first aired on public television. In lively, expansive dialogues, the two men discuss how myths hold the key to understanding human experience. They may vary superficially from culture to culture, but at their deepest level they all reveal the path to self-fulfillment, social integration, and ultimately, transcendence.
Join Campbell and Moyers as they touch on topics as diverse as world religions, marriage, the virgin birth, and pop culture. Filmed at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch and New York's American Museum of Natural History, this series fires the imagination and the intellect.
Bonus features include: never-before-released conversation with Campbell from "Bill Moyers' Journal"; selections from Moyers' interview with "Star Wars" creator George Lucas; 12-page viewer's guide with profiles of artists influenced by Campbell, an essay on mythology in everyday life, Campbell biography, and animal symbolism in myths; profiles of Campbell's Influences, episode photo galleries, Gill Moyers biography, and excerpts from the film "Sukhavati."Item #900293
