Today’s Guest: Laura Lewis-Barr was a graduate student in clinical psychology but eventually switched majors and earned her M.A. in theatre. In 2019 Laura began making stop motion films focused on fairy tales. Laura is now an award-winning filmmaker and educator. Her focus is on animating fairy tales and mythic stories for personal and collective transformation. She is inspired by the works of ML Von Franz, Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, and Michael Meade. Laura's films are made in her basement in Chicago, and her screening events are filled with heart and questions for the soul.
