Exploring the Soul Through Story-Telling
Irish writer and film critic Gareth Higgins comes to Laguna Beach to explore the landscape of the American soul through its best-known art form: film.

The talk will be accompanied by clips from films that illustrate the American soul (some iconic, some obscure, some just for fun).
