Pope Francis - A Man of His Word

 
 
 
 

 

Wim Wenders' new documentary, "Pope Francis - A Man of His Word," is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The pope's ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to today's global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace.

 

Chris Nashawaty  Entertainment Weekly:  "Whether he's washing the feet of prisoners in America, visiting sick children in Africa, or praying with hurricane victims in Asia, Pope Francis doesn't merely preach empathy, responsibility, and accountability, he lives it."

 

Ann Hornaday  Washington Post:  ""Pope Francis: A Man of His Word" offers audiences a thoroughly engrossing portrait of one of the most beloved and galvanizing figures of the 21st century..."

 

Bill Goodykoontz  Arizona Republic:  "So much of our public discourse now is about making ourselves sound bigger and better than we are, while belittling others who think differently. Here is one of the most powerful people in the world going in the opposite direction."

The Rider

 

Based on a true story, THE RIDER stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

 

Peter Travers   Rolling Stone:  "Filmmaker Chloé Zhao turns the story of real-life bronc rider Brady Jandreau into a gritty, graceful character study. Once The Rider hooks you - and believe me, it will - there's no way you will ever forget it.

 

Joe Morgenstern  Wall Street Journal:  "It's a rare treat to be so affected by-and connected to-a movie hero of so few words, and such vivid ones."

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  ""The Rider" comes as close to a spiritual experience as anything I've encountered in a movie theater this year."

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   JUNE 24

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event.

Ecstatic Dance is a place to dance “from the inside out” and connect with like-minded people of all ages in a safe and non-judgmental space. Given the large amount of people that may show up to the event and the nature of our free-form movement, for liability purposes this dance is open to anyone aged 13 years or older only.

In its most basic definition it is free-form movement/dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the grace or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance as if nobody is watching! It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation that develops a direct body-spirit connection. Let your body and inner guide be your teachers.

No dance experience or partner is necessary. It's a perfect outlet for those who think they can't dance and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
1. Move however you wish.
2. No talking on the dance floor or altar - low whispers off the floor please.
3. No shoes on the dance floor.
4. Water breaks to be taken off the dance floor.
