From Mount Olympus To Hollywood



In the face of the magnifi cent design of the world, we created mythology with the awe, excitement, and insight we felt. Then, around the fi re, we told each other stories; in the riddles asked by Sophocles to Oedipus, in the shadows refl ected on the walls of Plato’s cave, around King Arthur’s Round Table, in the projected shadows of Karagöz and Hacivat, and even on Shakespeare’s muddy stage where he enchanted drunken villagers. Then, it took on a different form with Edward Muggeridge’s camera and the Lumiere Brothers’ camera. Later on, storytelling was taken up by the likes of George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and Peter Jackson.
