Thanks to Nick Kimminau of OZA for calling my attention to this article on the movie Avatar, whose storyline is a metaphor for, well, seemingly everything! It’s a powerful example of co-creation.
As I watched the movie, I interpreted it as a metaphorical statement against the United States’ treatment of Native Americans. Others see it as a renunciation of the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan. Others see it as an anti-military polemic. Others frame it as an environmental movie. Do a Google search for “Avatar Metaphor” and all sorts of things pop up.
I guess that’s why it is a good movie, above and beyond the special effects. It has a story that can be interpreted in many ways.
