Strager Hero Final

One of my favorite heroes that we discussed in class was V from V for Vendetta. He was a very meticulous and thoughtful character, which added to his complexities. I also really enjoyed the movie’s different uses of symbolism throughout characters and character development.

I think it would be interesting to add the movie “Pay it Forward” to the curriculum to show how young children can be just as impactful as older men who have more power and sources.

The monomyth could be applied to my hero from my initial blog entry  about Joe from the documentary Craigslist Joe. Joe ventures out into the world with only the clothes on his back, a tooth brush and tooth paste, a backpack, a laptop, a cell phone with no phone contacts and a camera man he met off of craigslist. He embarks on the journey to learn if our society is still interconnected or if we fail at connecting to those around us because we are too consumed with technology. On his journey he learns that there is still hope in humanity as he meets many different people along the way who aid him by providing food, shelter and simple company. He connects best with a cultural hero because this journey would not be possible if we lived in a different time or society. He tried to change our society or at least the way we see it by bringing back his first-hand knowledge of the great people who live among us. He and the many he met along the way are all heroes.
