This week's film discussion concerns Euripides' ancient but pertinent story of speaking truth to presumptuous, dominating male-archy. Yes, it's Greek to me too, but it's still alive and all too well . . . manifest every time someone exerts pressure on another based upon mere physical force or, through privileges derived from initial physical force. Think "house is a man's castle" mentality.

This Youtube is a well-done filmed version of a stage performance in Athenian-esque style.
