Storyline

An inventive fusion of documentary, story, artwork and animation. Despite the fact that myth has always existed, surprisingly few people today are aware of even the classic myths or the potential myths have to impact their lives. Myths are the reservoir of human wisdom - the story and the meaning of life. Every human being has asked the questions who am I, what is my purpose, why am I here? The answers are in the myths that have been passed on from generation to generation. Mythology is a tool that can bridge cultures, communities and generations. Through this film we hope to inspire people to activism and show that by helping others we ultimately help ourselves. There is a saying, "Love without action is meaningless, but action without love is irrelevant." It's time to act, it's time to evolve. We are the ancestors of the future. Thousands of years from now we are going to be those handprints on the cave walls. And people will look back and say those were our ancestors; what did they... Written by Steven Boe

Truly, the power of myth.
23 July 2016 | by thefreelanceangelSee all my reviews

It's impossible to overstate just how important this documentary is. Especially now when we've lost our understanding of the necessity of myth in daily life.

Every story is perfectly selected and the animated sequences are enough to keep even impatient viewers interested. Tim Curry was (as always) a superb presence, even with his voice alone, and my eternal gratitude to Mark Hamill for showcasing his vocal talent.

Brian and Wendy Froud contributing with the character design and animation only made this better. And the documentary aspect, pointing out just how mythology has been intrinsic to cultures worldwide for thousands of years...

I can't simply put this on for background noise while I write or game. It demands my full attention, and I can't provide it with greater praise other than my feeling that Joseph Campbell would be proud of this.
