The Soul Biographies Collection is the work of NIC ASKEW, since 2005. Many of the films have the unbridled experience of human awareness running through them. They use a profound method of filming called Inner View. The Collection of films (and words) is vast. Just a few are currently screening here at the moment.
We now screen pieces from the Collection to the members of the Film List each week. They play for that week.
To receive the weekly Film add your email in the box below, and click GO.
The Collection will have a new home within the soon to launch The Point of Us. The films playing here represent a small fraction of the total Collection.

"It’s 2am. You’re wide awake. Feeling alone. Unseen. And inexplicably lost. Discontent despite all that you have around you. The people. Your life. Your dreams. You wear a face that tells the world you’re OK, but you’re not. You’re bone achingly tired from the relentless game of belonging."
We level our ire at the world around us. The world with which our opinion so often disagrees. But might our energy be better focused on the experience within our own personal jurisdiction. This was filmed from deep within the experience of a thoughtful life lived through desegregation in Alabama. This film is the epitome of the experience of peace.
Living through the protracted experience of dispossession, Jeff Mitchell alongside others has seen a way through the pain of generations. Some in the Klamath Basin have a collective realization that when one truly knows another there is the vast possibility to transform everything.
