The Cave: A Parable Told By Orson Welles
Presents an animated version of the allegory of the cave from the sixth book of Plato's Republic. Creates the scene at the bottom of the cave while Orson Welles narrates. Suggests, as does the original parable, the tension between illusion and reality, the tenacity of false perceptions, the joy in heightened awareness, and the nobility of the enlightened man who accepts as his responsibility the enlightenment of others.
