“Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it.”
—Hannah Arendt, 20th Century political philosopher, author, and Holocaust survivor
Wendy and I love going to the movies. Although we can now see thousands of films from a multitude of streaming services from home, somehow the big screen is how we most enjoy these stories.
We recently saw Death on The Nile based on Agatha Christie’s classic novel. The public rated this film considerably higher than the critics and we, too, were gripped by the twists and turns untangled by the famous Hercule Poirot. Great stories magically take us along for the ride without having to narrate everything we are supposed to see. Discovering many clues on our own and being our own sleuths is a big part of the fun.
How and where do you use storytelling to convey important messages and engage your audiences?
In what ways can you better reveal meaning without committing the error of defining it?
