wonderful reflection
21 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw this at the Gasparilla International Film Festival in Tampa. Among the variety of selections this year, I was most impressed with this film produced under the global lens initiative. The more we are afforded a glimpse into our global brothers and sisters, the more we can understand that we are alike. I commend the filmmaker for his honest commentary on what plagues us as a creature on this earth. As we race through our lives at breakneck speed, destroying all in our path, this film offers a pause to consider how removed we've become from ourselves, others emotionally and spiritually. I hope this film receives more screenings around the world to remind all of us of our mortality, and fallibility as humans. Provocative .
