Welcome back to our Philosophy in Film series.
This time around we will be showing films over the year that deal with the subject matter that is acutely relevant to both philosophy and film; the issue of point of view. We’ll start with a good flick that deals with the theme of POV cinematically, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly directed by Julian Schnabel. We will also preview my short film, Searching for Sophia (14 min.) Do not miss out!


stay tune for other films that deal with the more philosophical POV.
sugestions are always welcomed.


One thought on “Philosophy in Film: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

  1. If you haven't been to one of our Philosophy in Film Discussions, here are few reasons why should try to make the next:

    1. The flicks do not disappoint. So even if you fail to see the philosophical questions being presented, rest assure, though no explicit guarantee can be made, you will nonetheless probably be a better… human being for watching the film.

    2. While most films have a more or less a predominate philosophical issue, the real benefit of discussions are that different people have different interpretations. Here the films really begin to serve as a way to participate in Philosophy and Art.

    3. I was going to mention free popcorn and punch, but if reason 1 or 2 haven't peaked your interest then nothing will short of saying a lot cool and sexy people will be there ( again, no explicit guarantee can be made).
