Viewing Complexity

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

The other night, my family and I sat down to watch a film called The Song. It was about a musician who turned away from his marriage and family due to the temptations being in the spotlight afforded him.

The film itself was well done and followed a set of storytelling parameters that were...

Everywhere I look, I either see complete acceptance and celebration, or emphatic rejection and horror. With the...
