The Owl's Legacy

Some stills from a never-aired Chris Marker TV show called The Owl's Legacy. Amazing spectral TV, in so many different ways. Talking heads and eavesdropping owls track the shifting meanings of ancient Greek concepts as they travel through time. And there is some excellent footage of Berkeley profs drinking wine in the Greek Theater. Watch all 13 episodes here.

  2. Another great share Ben.
    Here are some different Greek owls by way of thanks:

  3. Ah, that's great. Hadn't seen that episode!
