Movie Night! “Paths of the Soul”

paths-of-the-soul-movieA Journey into Humanity and Faith

Friday, October 28, 7pm

“Paths of the Soul” is an astonishing journey of redemption, faith and devotion. Acclaimed filmmaker Zhang Yang blends documentary and fiction to follow a group of Tibetan villagers who leave their families and homes to make a Buddhist “bowing pilgrimage” – laying their bodies flat on the ground after every few steps – along the 1,200 mile road to Lhasa, Tibet’s holy capital. Though united in their remarkable devotion, each of the travelers embarks on this near impossible journey for very personal reasons. One needs to expunge bad family karma, a butcher wants to cleanse animal bloodstains from his soul, another at his life’s end, hopes to break the chain of cause and effect determined by his life’s actions. Stunningly photographed over the course of an entire year, “Paths of the Soul” is a mesmerizing study of faith that will inspire viewers to reflect on their own journey through life.

Please enjoy this fascinating film with us. Bring something to eat or drink for our potluck table.

Movie Night is free and open to the public. Our space is small, so please arrive on time.   RSVP at linforre@aol.com.
