Is there anything greater than Man? Well, what about Women?

I don't have much to say about Antigone that hasn't already been said and been said better then I could. I did find a few interesting things online though.

A 5 minute preview of a movie put to screen by Giorgos Tzavellas - http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/category/entertainment/watch/v6500520enmWbc7f

A short animated film from youtube using cut outs of celebrity heads (I was amused) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKM4t8EzKoc

And a production of Antigone (called Antigone Revisited) featured on www.yourgreenews.com - it was created for a post 9/11 audience. The writer and director discusses how Antigone relates to an issue that became so important to Americans after 9/11 - National security vs. individualism. He also talks about how he tried to preserve the integrity and themes by working with the wording to make it relevant to a contemporary setting- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buThfTHJyeM

The last was my favorite and I thought it tied into our course's theme very well - how the past possesses the present.
