Tim Robbins: "We witness the transformation of human beings...from their involvement in creativity"

Great extract here from the David Eagleman documentary "The Creative Brain", where Tim Robbins nails the significance for the human condition in experiencing creativity. Tim works in prisons with acting classes, and emphatically makes the case for how the space and permission to be creative can changes people's lives.

It's an excellent documentary, covering many angles on the subject, with engaging interviews from many disciplines.

The documentary is available on Netflix, and the homepage is:

I'm intrigued by a contradiction from one of the writers featured, who says that there is nothing original (not to devalue the process of how creatives take multiple inspirations and transform them), but the last shot is of David speaking the essential opportunity and hope in creative originality. To discuss!
