Movies move us.
Sure they were originally called “movies” because they were “motion pictures”. And there is something about the total immersion in a darkened theater watching a large screen that “puts us in the picture” and creates a totality of experience that is not just intellectual, but visceral and all-encompassing. That’s why movies move us.
Can movies move us toward an actual movement that moves the world?
Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week, filmmaker Emmanuel Itier thinks so. Born in France, Itier moved to the US 30 years ago and has used his platform in recent years to promote consciousness, and political and spiritual transformation.
His most recent film — created in collaboration with Executive Producer Sharon Stone, is called WE THE PEOPLE — a worldwide exploration of the notions of politics and economics with the likes of Robert Reich, Deepak Chopra, Sharon Stone, Michael Beckwith, Nobel Peace Laureates Mairead Maguire and Tawakkol Karman, Vandana Shiva, Mark Wahlberg, and many others. Says Emmanuel, “If we cultivate caring economies and politics maybe we can build a sustainable planet full of peace, justice and love for everybody. When you watch WE THE PEOPLE you will realize we are not focusing at putting anyone, any party, down but we are focusing on the possible solution to better our Humanity and use the tools of politics and economics to build a sustainable future.” … Read more here.
