Abstract

The motion picture is conceived of as a modern-day avenue for providing humans with mythological, metaphorical and symbolic imagery. Human subjects were interviewed to determine how film imagery was processed on a cognitive basis. Subjects were also interviewed about their dream imagery to elicit any matching or resonating with the imagery from their felt film experience and dream experience. Utilizing a mythic method, the researcher examined the narratives to discover emergent patterns and configurations of symbolic imagery, metaphorical and mythological content as related to personal mythologies.
