There are three classes of people:
those who see,
those who see when they are shown,
those who do not see.

Genre: Documentary / Independent Film
Country: Russia
Language: Russian / EN subtitles

A philosophical doctrine on the transformation of human nature.

The film expresses the concept of Human Unity which is being developed in the experimental city of Auroville, founded on principles of shared leadership, sustainable development and new consciousness. The driving force behind the manifestation of it was Mirra Alfassa, known to her followers as The Mother. Auroville is meant to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. Under the shaping influence of the Mother’s and Sri Aurobindo’s dual philosophies, Auroville emerges as a unique, multi-cultural confluence where matter and spirit, the individual and the collective meet in the search for a higher consciousness.

Oneness & Identity

The meeting of Man and God is a penetration and entry of the divine into the human and a self-immergence of Man in the Divinity.

What does it stand between us and the Life we desire, the Dreams we want to achieve, the Peace we want to feel?

This movie is about the understanding and the overtaking of the set of forces acting on all human beings in order to make them weak, fearful, doubtful, leading to delay rather than to act. In the movie, we will see how the Opponent dis-empowers us, what kind of means it uses to do it, and a possible way out that leads us to set our-self free from its harmful interaction.

Country: United States
Language: English /

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.

Genre: Documentary / Feature Length
Country: United States
Language: English / CN / DE / FR / ES / PT / RU / EN subtitles

A powerful and informative documentary about society’s treatment of animals, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix with soundtrack by Moby.

Earthlings is a feature-length documentary about humankind’s absolute economic dependence on animals raised as pets, food, clothing, entertainment and for scientific research. Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, Earthlings chronicles the day-to-day practices at some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, Earthlings is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals and human economic interests.

Alma (2010)

Posted in Documentary, Independent Film, Philosophy, Psychology, World Cinema with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2014 by SiNgUlIbRiUm

Director: Patrick Rouxel
Producer: Patrick Rouxel
Genre: Documentary / Independent Film
Country: United States
Language: English / None

The devastating effect of the cattle industry on the Amazonian rainforest in Brazil.

Patrick Rouxel has dedicated his time to making films aimed at raising awareness of deforestation, loss of biodiversity, and the ethical treatment of animals. In Alma, Rouxel continues his visual poetry into the world’s forests and industries that are destroying them, heading to Brazil to explore the devastating impacts of the cattle industry. The film offers an exposition of a cowboy culture and the millions of animals used to satisfy our voracious global appetite for meat and dairy products. The film wanders from forest to pasture to rodeo to slaughterhouse to market to tannery.

In essence, Alma is a journey into the soul of humanity and a testimony of the damage inflicted by humans on the natural world.
