Introduction Coming Soon. Singuli nobis resistere videtur, unum, sicut et nos clamamus testimonium quod sumus. Et sicut vocem de secreto per actiones, nostris omni die, ulterius non a conspectu suo.
Warning. This is haunting. You might be haunted. Jayanie and I have a knowing. Between us. Beyond words. Beyond time. This we know. Though we had never met. Might there be nowhere to get to? Might you call off the search?
‘... perhaps true beauty is something that draws our attention at second glance, once the judgment of a first glance has realised it’s mistake.’ This is a film about the possibility that exists beyond judgment.
The Hospice Community at Joseph's House in Washington DC hold the belief that no one should live, or die alone. Welcome to ‘On the Edge of Life and Death’. It’s the film title, because it is just that.
It’s a feeling inside that defies definition. It’s an experience of wholeness. An experience of tranquility. Of peace. An experience of home. It’s an experience of life. I could stay here all day.
As the Soul Biographies Experience plays out, opinion and need fall away exposing an unobstructed view to each soul. The resulting surge of courage encourages words previously left unsaid to be said. More often than not, words dripping in intensity and pain. But not always.
Doña Chona seems tired but she isn’t frightened. The frightened you see deep in the eyes of most human beings. A frightened that hides itself well. A frightened that quietly shouts its assumption of isolation, and of loneliness.
‘Is it true?‘ exists as one of the most profound questions. A question you would do well to ask yourself often. Pay full attention to this few minutes with the enigmatic and mystical Byron Katie.
The fascinating thing about many riddles is that you can stare at them and completely miss their point. And often, a riddle will fool you into the illusion of understanding. A short film about the nature and whereabouts of joy.
This film concerns the terrifying experience of being seen. And there is no modern day pacing to carry you through this film. No drama to help frayed attention. Such is the quiet and subtle experience of the profound.
‘what’s the most insane thing that anyone can believe … that they know what’s going on.’ Philosopher Tim Freke has a sense that life is not what it seems, that maybe we are not who we think we are.
A dramatic story, pointing to a human resilience which I believe is more common than we suppose. It’s told through an uncommon depth of observation. And wonders if there is more to us than the series of events we've been through.
In this film with Mike Dooley, the wildly popular author of ‘Notes From the Universe’, a vastly challenging question is asked ...’Might your life be proof that thoughts become things?’
'It happens with people. It happens in solitude. It happens in the midst of incredible busyness. And incredible stillness.' Might you take a step towards a contemplative life. A meditative life. A life of quiet and courageous transformation.
'I like silence. Sometimes words are exhausting.' Silence can be powerful if one can remain with it. Indeed, might silence melt the wall around each heart.
Might the eyes really be the window to the soul? And what if they were? What would that even mean to the experience of your life?
‘…the Universe said Jonas is not listening. We did everything we can to make him listen. But he does not listen. So maybe this will wake him up.’ A film about art, cancer and waking up.
Perhaps the life that we seek is already hidden in the experience of the life that we currently possess. And perhaps one doesn’t need to kneel down or lie down, or listen to vegetarian music to experience a life of connection and wonder.
It starts ‘a man seemingly larger than nature intended lies staring at the ceiling waiting for his time.’ The film is an experiment from 2007, concerning the final chapter of a life.
