 What is video philo?

 

 "Innocence"
Sunday, May 11

Video philo is an event in which a film will be shown and a theme taken from the story to be discussed.  It isn’t a ‘critique’ of the film but rather an analysis of a theme evoked in the film.  The advantage of this method focuses our discussion on the theme in the ‘context’ of the story of the film.  A context that is shared by the group. 

This coming video philo will be on  "Innocence"  as evoked in  the  film "Being There".

 

Innocence is a human quality associated with purity, freedom from thoughts of evil or wrong doing and the absence of shame or guilt.  An innocent person, often a child or one who is naïve or lacking in sophistication, is uncorrupted and blameless.  Yet there is a perplexing relationship between innocence and knowledge.  Though a certain ‘truth’ may be embodied in innocent thought, the proverbial "fall from innocence" was a result of gaining knowledge of the self and the world.  We will be viewing a 1979 classic satire, "Being There" in which a very simple and ‘innocent’ gardener (Peter Sellars) becomes a national political guru, recognized for his honesty and wisdom.
