Our current spotlight is upon the Conscious Cinema of Bollywood and other Indian film makers
Bollywood movies have a format something like this:
Laughter Romance Dancing
Despair Hope Dancing
Climactic Dancing & Rejoicing!
And frankly, most movies do that (except the dance part), but the way Bollywood does it is different ~ It's like a science
and it gets ya every time!
Come see why Bollywood is such a rejoiced aspect of Indian culture!
This is a real cinematic experience with projector, big screen, surround sound, popcorn, and drinks.
The Line Up
Lagaan is perhaps the ultimate movie on the power of unity in diversity and teamwork.
This movie was so powerful that some other countries made their own versions of it.
Please be advised that some Bollywood movies are quite long. So, sometimes we will split them up over 2 Fridays. Also, they can be very deep. So we also allow for a bit of discussion before we leave / reflect on our way home.
Our next movie series will be a thought provoking list of documentaries, starting with:
Auroville: City of the Dawn
Auroville is the worldś largest intentional community based on an ¨experiment of human unity¨and yogic principles that will feel very familiar to Baha'i's. In fact, the founder of Auroville was once asked by Abdul Baha to speak on His behalf. Auroville, like the Baha'i Faith, gives great hope for the future of humanity.
