In this episode, we discuss the three-part poetry film Journey of Becoming. A reading of the poem Your Autonomy, (part I) of ‘The Journey of Becoming’, which is a series of philosophical poetry films about self-realization. The purpose behind this film is to describe the struggles we face when we step away from the trodden path to follow our own unique path.
