The Hero's Journey

Imagine's exhibition this year displays the seventeen necessary steps for a hero to take within a story.

The Hero's Journey

The Hero’s Journey͟ Is a widely used tool in the movie industry, developed by myth-reseacher Joseph Campbell. His model for an epic seventeen step long sequence, in which the hero saves the world and cleanses himself, was distilled from a wide range of traditional stories. Follow these seventeen steps and you will create the perfect heroic epic - just look at Star Wars, The Matrix and The Lion King.

Imagine 2018 puts the spotlight on the Hero’s Journey, it will guide the visitors to go on an epic journey of their own. The seventeen steps will form a route though the EYE filmmuseum, scattered with interactive art and exciting experiences. So, take the Call to Action to heart, get over the Treshold and take a Magic Flight!

This exhibition will feature work of Yasmin Sheikh, Charl Landvereugd, Temple Clark and HKU students.
