Drs Santtila and Weslake present this film to prompt discussion about assessing the value of a creation, specifically, how that assessment iregards the creator’s character. If a creator’s poor ethical choices are revealed over time, how do those affect criticism of the creation?
Movies prompt conversation, whether disagreement, emotion, or endorsement.
