Deepak Chopra, Tony Hawk, Mick Fleetwood and Rashida Jones are among those featured in Finding Joe, Patrick Takaya Solomon's inspiring 2011 documentary about the teachings of mythologist Joseph Campbell. The film explores "the hero's journey," a key component of Campbell's best-known work The Hero with a Thousand Faces, which has since influenced untold numbers of writers and artists. But it also shows how Campbell's work is relevant and essential in today's world, laying out a narrative for how to live a fully realized life. Tickets include popcorn. Learn More

This is a review for the Concert on Saturday, not the film as the title above seems to be inconsistent....but anyway...concert was overall very enjoyable. The selection of pieces performed was varied, most interesting and many were new to me. Keeping in mind that many of the singers were high school age, although not always a flawless performance, it was well executed. Not all solo voices were really strong enough for the music they were performing (Mozart's "Regina Coeli" in particular). Two highlights for me were Sydney Bell's "Flower of Beauty" and the Lauridsen (of course)--both just gorgeous works.
