Life Maps: The Search for Meaning in the Modern Arts


Name Email Phone
Norman Leer 608-236-0158

This class is designed for people interested in modern literature, film, music and the visual arts, and who want to explore connections between works of art and their own life searches. Both parts of this dialogue are equally important, and can elicit deeper meanings from the works and our own lives. This spring, we’ll explore films by Federico Fellini, and focus on his themes of alienation and staying connected to life’s mysteries and potential beauty. Films will include La Strada, 8 1/2, Juliet of the Spirits, Amarcord and either La Dolce Vita or Ginger and Fred.
