Expand your perceptions.

Each moment, events take place that the human eye cannot perceive because these occurrences are too small, too large, too fast, too slow or beyond the spectrum of visible light. This 1979 National Geographic special classic video shows us that ‘hidden’ world – the sight of water crystallizing into ice, a single atom’s movement within solid matter, a bullet speeding towards its target. Different sizes, different spectrum, and even different rates of speed can illuminate the underlying processes that are beyond the limits of our eyes and will forever alter your understanding and perception of the world.

Genre: Documentary / Feature Length
Country: United States
Language: English / ES / PT subtitles

Rediscover an enchanted cosmos in the modern world.

Entheogen: Awakening the Divine Within is a feature length documentary which examines the re-emergence of archaic techniques of ecstasy in the modern world by weaving a synthesis of ecological and evolutionary awareness,electronic dance culture, and the current pharmacological re-evaluation of entheogenic compounds. Within a narrative framework that imagines consciousness itself to be evolving, Entheogen documents the emergence of techno-shamanism in the post-modern world that frames the following questions:
How can a renewal of ancient initiatory rites of passage alleviate our ecological crisis?
What do trance dancing and festivals celebrating unbridled artistic expression speak to in our collective psyche?
How do we re-invent ourselves in a disenchanted world from which God has long ago withdrawn?
Entheogen invites the viewer to consider that the answers to these questions lie within the consciousness of each and every human being, and are accessible if only we give ourselves permission to awaken to the divine within.

Stan Grof, Marilyn Schlitz, Ralph Metzner, Alex Grey, Terrence McKenna, John Markoff, Daniel Pinchbeck, and Kat Harrison among others, postulate how the disenchantment of the modern world may be remedied by summoning the courage to take the next leap in the evolution of planetary consciousness.

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.
