Meet the Producers and View Film "Globalized Soul"

"Globalized Soul" Film and Discussion With Producers 
Kell Kearns and Cynthia Lucas

The film “Globalized Soul” will be featured at the September 10th Citizens for Peace meeting at Unity of Livonia 28660 Five Mile Rd.) at 7 pm. The film focuses on the need for love and nonviolence for our survival. It is beautifully filmed in Israel, India, Turkey, Morocco, Australia, Mexico, and the United States. 

There are interviews with global spiritual leaders including Rabbi Michael Learner, Sister Joan Chittister, Reverand James Trapp, and Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bukhari.

The stories of the peace-builders in India and Israel are the highlights of this inspiring film. In India, the poorest and most physically challenged are provided with medical help while the Dalai Lama holds interreligious dialogues with Jain scholars.  In Israel, courageous Muslim, Jewish and Christian peacemakers come together to affirm their oneness at a dinner celebrating the end of Ramadan.

“Globalized Soul is a sensitively made film on peace.  It leaves you with a positive feeling that peace is possible if we know how to build it” said Gandhi's grandson, Arun Gandhi after seeing the film.

Producers, Kell Kearns and Cynthia Lewis will be discussing the making of this film and will be available for questions after the viewing  of “Globalized Soul”.

All are welcome.
