The Beauty of Being with music, words, and images.

WisdomFilms, founded and created by Gary Malkiin, is a new genre in contemplative, life-enhancing media that offer a refreshing way to reduce stress and restore balance to our mind, heart, and soul. The short films can help to create sacred space within and without, providing personal sanctuaries of profound beauty and peace through state-of-the-art nature photography.

Michael Stillwater is a songwriter and healing music artist. His pioneering work providing intuitive songs facing end-of-life issues directly led to the co-creation of the ground-breaking resource Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, that invites us to listen to the depths of our being, in sickness or health. This is a true liturgy of soul, a blessing for the caregivers, companions and family of those in transition. The beauty of music, word and spirit brings us to the world of Grace.

Director: Gary Tarn
Producer: Gary Tarn, Nicole Stott, Julie Goldman
Genre: Documentary / Music / Experimental
Country: United Kingdom / United States
Language: English

A poetic cinematic meditation on an extraordinary life without vision.

Gary Tarn explores the story of Hugues de Montalembert, a New York-based artist and filmmaker who was blinded by a vicious, unprovoked attack by two young assailants in 1978. After the attack, Montalembert learned to cope with his despair and to go through life a new way, seeking to make ordinary things extraordinary. Defying expectation, this remarkable artist continued to travel the world alone, learning to navigate life in a new and beautiful way. Through creative imagery and philosophical narration, director and composer Gary Tarn creates an expressionist, poetic meditation both on an extraordinary life without vision, and on the idea of perception in general.

Carpe diem!
Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.

We have drunk Soma and become immortal; we have attained the light, the Gods discovered. Now what may foeman’s malice do to harm us?
What, O Immortal, mortal man’s deception?

Director: Louis Fox
Producer: Louis Fox, Jonah Sachs
Genre: Animation / Short
Country: United States
Language: English / CN / DE / FR / ES / PT / IT / RU / EN subtitles

A four-minute animation that spoofs the Matrix films and highlights the problems caused by factory farming and industrial agricultural practices.

The films are humorous and creative satires that use pop culture and entertainment to educate viewers about the food they eat and where it comes from. All the films feature three superhero farm animals including Leo, the young pig who wonders if he is “the one”, Chickity, the feathered family farm defender, and Moopheus, the trench-coat-clad cow with a passion for green pastures as they expose the problems with factory farming while making the world safe for sustainable family farms.

It was made by the green messaging firm Free Range Studios and Sustainable Table in 2003 as a commissioned project for GRACE Communications Foundation, and two sequels were released in 2006, titled The Meatrix II: Revolting, and The Meatrix II ½.
