And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour. —William Blake
Since movies began, luminous actors and actresses have depicted journeys that transform human consciousness. This seminar will show fourteen feature films (1939-2011) from the US, Japan, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and China including some films not seen at our film seminars since 2006, with our first two all-time favorites among them.
