Last week, I got the opportunity to interview one of my favorite professors on film for the first project in my Film Genres class. Professor Brett Rogers, author of Classical Traditions in Science Fiction and associate professor of Classics here at Puget Sound, gave me and my project partner Nate some insight into the study of classical receptions. We asked him to talk about an article he wrote for his book in which he discusses the move Alien Resurrection and Homer’s Odyssey. There was a time limit for the project (just under three minutes), so ideally it would have included a lot more! But time limit aside, it was a pretty cool experience.
Here’s the completed video!
