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.

Loneliness is always concerned with others;
aloneness is concerned with oneself.
Your aloneness is your essential being.

We who solve mystery, become mystery.

As Razam sets out to document the booming business of Amazonian shamanism in the 21st century, he quickly finds himself caught up in a culture clash between the old world and the new. Braving a gringo trail of the soul, he uncovers a movement of ‘spiritual tourists’ coming from the West for a direct experience of the multidimensional reality shamanism connects one to.

Genre: Documentary / Experimental
Country: United States
Language: English

A personal reservoir of experience unique to each individual.

The Cosmic Giggle is an experimental documentary film that explores the human energy field’s dynamic relationship with our environment. Naturally as human beings, we are connected to a vast network of fluid information inherent to the world around us. When we are children, we are open to this field through simple innocent observance, but because of our collective evolution towards a dominating and fixated worldview, this perception becomes veiled. This film reveals how this process takes place and provides keys for returning to a more primal and authentic experience of our reality.

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.

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.
