Some of our favorite films from Spiritual Cinema Circle are those that connect us to our creativity and humanity.

This month’s feature film is the Emmy Award-winning documentary Journey of the Universe. Narrated by Brian Thomas Swimme, the film takes us on a journey through history and our connection with all of humanity.

This month, Spiritual Cinema Circle highlights films about love in all its many forms.

A Bird of the Air is our February feature. Filmed in New Mexico, it tells the story of a solitary man (Jackson Hurst) whose life is altered by both a stray parrot and a woman (Rachel Nichols) who inspire him to ask questions about his past — and his future. A Bird of the Air was directed by Margaret Whitton and written by Roger Towne, best known as the writer of The Natural, which starred Robert Redford.
