Philosophy Talk: Movie Special

2018-oscar-nominations.jpg

What are some recent movies that challenged our assumptions and made us think about things in new ways? 

Josh and Ken talk to philosophers, film critics, and listeners in presenting their fifth (mostly) annual Dionysus Awards for the most philosophically compelling recent movies. Categories include:

• Most Searing Depiction of Humankind's Propensity to Dehumanize the Other
• Most Philosophically Absurdist and Cinematically Transgressive Film
• Richest Investigation of the Drivers of History

Sunday 7/29 at 11 am and Tuesday 7/31 at 12 noon.
