My guest today is Laura Lewis-Barr, a playwright, freelance director, theater professor, and award-winning stop motion film maker. Laura is the creator of Psyche Cinemas, where she publishes her stop motion films about fairy tales portrayed in modern and fanciful situations. Laura alternates between creating short updated fairy tales and original scripts exploring characters and cultures from a Jungian perspective. Laura is a huge fan of stories and myths, and has found a true passion exploring them through a unique and creative framework. She’s like a child at play and, in speaking with her, I felt her energy, passion, and enthusiasm throughout. I truly enjoyed my conversation with Laura and I hope you do as well.
In our conversation we discussed Catholicism, Mormonism, monotheistic and polytheistic religion, the ego, social behavior, the concept of the inner child, the hero’s journey, Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, symbolic language, fairy tales, play, creativity, growing up, and the subconscious mind.
