(No Audio) Godflix: The Hunger Games

August 27, 2012

District 12, Katniss's home, is a place where food, clothing, safety and shelter are scarce. When she arrives at the Capitol as District 12's tribute for the Hunger Games, she discovers that even though people seem to have an over-abundance of everything, they still are not satisfied. The spectacle of the Hunger Games fills the void for awhile. The people are kept fed and distracted. We, too, seem to have almost everything. We are kept fed and distracted in so many ways. But what is it we hunger for? And what is it that truly feeds us?
