In our first Movie Night, Dwelling takes a new spin on our usual Philosophy Sessions where we will explore leadership themes through characters, plots, and principles that can be found in a movie. In a discussion thereafter we will draw out what our favorite heroes and villains reflect in us and in those around us, and how the plot reflects real life situations we face and how we approach them.
