Editor's note: I recently received this information on a fascinating web series by Lisa Stock. I'm very pleased to be sharing the information with friends of Enchanted Conversation.
As winter sets in across the country, director Lisa Stock delivers an eight part web series on the myth of Persephone and her journey back toward Spring.
Persephone follows the daughter of Demeter as she ascends from the Underworld through a treacherous landscape – both physical and emotional. In the series, Persephone must confront her fears about death, assume the persona of the Deer Queen, and take her place among the Shades. On either end of the path Hades and Demeter vie for the one they love, and fight to hold together the worlds they've created. But it is Persephone who must accept her fate, and find the courage and strength to bring on death and winter once again.
|"Althea," from Persephone|
"From pins to needles, from sun to sand, darkness and birth. The queen of Hades...the daughter of Demeter... Caught in the cycle of Souls."
|"Hades," from Persephone|
