December: Celebrating Our Shared Humanity

Posted By Spiritual Cinema Circle On November 23, 2012 @ 1:11 pm In Conscious Living News, Inspirational Media, Personal Growth | 1 Comment

This December, Spiritual Cinema Circle [1] celebrates films that remind us of our shared humanity.

The feature film for December is The Letter Writer, written and directed by Christian Vuissa. It is a story about connection across generations as a teenage girl learns a valuable lesson from her mentor, a man at the end of a long life [2].

The December DVD also includes three short films:

Everything is Incredible is a documentary about a man who is physically disabled from polio, yet has spent 50 years building a surprisingly advanced helicopter out of rebar, bicycle parts and wood. His dream to take flight [3] infuses this emotional film with spirit and determination.

Downpour is a gentle film about a woman revisiting the rainy days that have led to one of the sweetest events of her life.

In All The Way Up, we meet a man whose course is sidetracked by an unexpected encounter in an elevator. Directed by award-winning British actor Sir David Jason, All the Way Up won numerous festival prizes, including “Best Short” at the Monaco International Film Festival.

Spiritual Cinema Circle [1] is a monthly DVD club that celebrates inspiring and thought-provoking films.
