Odyssey: Director’s Notes


 

We see a King and Queen separated for decades by war and an epic voyage but determined to return to one another. That is the magnet that drives this tale to reunite loved ones, across land and sea. This telling of the hero’s journey finds humor in the long the voyage, the many obstacles, the stubbornness of ego, and the tides and currents that guide our journey. Though the stories are of monsters and gods, their encounters are quite human, revealing the lure of comfort, the deceitfulness of pride, the temptation of beauty. Sounds like life. Aren’t we all on our own epic Odyssey?
