Audrey Hepburn & Us | A Philosphy of Body, Soul, Face & Motion for a Better World
This video is about faces and bodies and how we move them, which is far, far more important than we realize. This crazy journey begins with Audrey Hepburn, runs through German and Chinese philosophy, and, by various and sundry routes, arrives back at each and every one of us. Grace is beauty of movement. And moving beautifully matters. For example, we know that our human relationships (with with parents, children, family, friends, strangers, and enemies) are foundational for our lives, but we often don’t appreciate the fact that the WAY we move our bodies in respect to those people forms the baseline for the quality of those relationships. So much of our broader moral interaction comes down to facial expression, to tone of voice, to the way we look at people—whether in a restrained, graceful, dignified way, with clear-eyed, confident respect, or in a cowardly, aggressive, lewd way. Grace and dignity are what make for better lives, a better society, and a better world.
