Writer and philosopher, Roger Scruton, presents a stark look at the loss and desecration of beauty in contemporary art with an hour long essay entitled “Why Beauty Matters”.

Throughout the film we are challenged to wonder if losing the idea of transcendental beauty in art promotes the loss of meaning in life.  By using specific art examples and philosophical ideas, Mr. Scruton aims to show us that it is the pursuit of beauty that helps us find our way ‘home’ and without it we find ourselves in a sort of spiritual desert searching for something to fill the void.
