You’re not who you think you are. You’re not who other people think you are. In fact who you really are can’t be “thought” at all. And yet we continue to live our lives as if we were God; as if we were in control; as we were free to set and secure our destiny. The truth is otherwise, and the truth will set you free. Join as he pulls the curtain back from the Great and Terrible Wizard of Self to reveal a little ego with a large megaphone. He will offer practical spiritual advice on how to live holistically and intentionally in a chaotic world. Free Indian Food!

Here is a film truly unlike any other: ambitious and stunning, earnest and silly, exaggerated and true, messy yet finely wrought, a genuine big-screen moving picture cascading in operatic crescendos of image and emotion. Six stories – sprawling from the 1800’s to a post-apocalyptic distant future – bounce off each other as echoing acts of courage and kindness change the world. Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
