As we said in the last issue, every so often there comes along a deal that is too good to pass up. The January 2004 issue of TheScreamOnline ran an article about Stephen Simon’s new film Indigo, in which we included a mention of The Spiritual Cinema Circle, his new film club that offers movies that illumine and inspire individual and social transformation. In this context, "spiritual" refers not to religion but to the unseen divine essence that is life force itself. Since the March launch of The Spiritual Cinema Circle thousands of people around the world have become subscribers, in countries such as:

Afghanistan

We subscribed to The Spiritual Cinema Circle, and the first few months of films really delivered on their promises. Themes include life after life, enhanced powers and sensibilities, reality and time, visionary romance and adventures, and the power of love.

A young Korean woman comes to America to look for her family in this moody, mysterious short film. As she begins her search, she finds solace in the comforting kinship of a Korean cab driver.

INTO ME SEE
A feature film workshop on relationships, with an introduction by Circle co-founders and relationship experts Kathlyn and Gay Hendricks. IN TO ME SEE presents us with the challenges we all face with intimate relationships. By allowing us a "fly on the wall" perspective of a reunion between a man and woman who come together for a day of healing after 6 years of separation, we gain new insights into the process of letting go. Do you see yourself in either of the main characters? If you've ever suffered a broken heart or struggled with love and loss, you will find some clues to your transformation and healing in this unique film workshop.  Written and Directed by James Twyman.

AMERICA'S HEART & SOUL (U.S. & Canada only)
World-class cinematographer Louis Schwartzberg takes us on a whirlwind tour of America in this inspiring and beautifully filmed feature-length documentary. We meet an incredible array of Americans who are all ordinary people, living extraordinary lives — people who have, above all else, followed their passions to fulfill their life’s purpose. These are some of the most inspiring people we have ever met on film, and, unlike the portraits we usually get from most mainstream media, they are a great reminder of the diversity and strength of the people of the United States of America. Directed by Louis Schwartzberg.
