Week 5 of ENG 281 Ethics/Film: Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

[In BCTC's library on reserve at the front desk for ENG 282 is the two disc special edition of Pan's Labyrinth which has some of the best "making of" extras I have viewed -- highly recommended for anyone trying to understand/interpret/analyze thr film and Del Toro's creative process.]

“We need myths that will help us to identify with all our fellow-beings, not simply with those who belong to our ethnic, national or ideological tribe. We need myths that help us to realize the importance of compassion, which is not always regarded as sufficiently productive or efficient in our pragmatic, rational world” -- Karen Armstrong, A Short History of Myth (2005: 136-7)
