What makes a movie integral? Why are so many integral works science fiction or fantasy? Mark Allan Kaplan and Jonathan Steigman explore the Netflix series “The Diplomat” and how it reflects the Integral structure of consciousness
Jonathan Steigman is a Bay Area activist, filmmaker, magician, communication consultant and independent researcher. While attending the University of Chicago (BA in Art & Design) this lifelong cinephile was co-chairman of Doc Films, the oldest continuous film society in the United States. Jonathan has worked in film production and post-production in Los Angeles, New York and Prague, and also has extensive experience in sales, marketing, writing and editing.
A childhood spent in France, Nigeria and Gabon gave him a broad appreciation of our essential global interconnectedness, while occasional stints in Washington DC, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco have helped him to understand different cross-cultural communication patterns. Adept in many domains of communication, Jonathan is a film and social media activist and host of the The Emperor Has No Clothes (T.E.H,N.C.) podcast, where he applies his knowledge to help bring awareness to the hidden structural foundations of inequality and injustice.
