FILM

Uncommon documentaries


The Road to Armageddon: A Spiritual Documentary examines the universal concept of the Apocalypse on an intensely personal and spiritual level, not as the end of the world but as the end of you: your body, your mind and, if you're not careful, your soul. The film puts the viewer on the front lines of the eternal battle between good and evil, combining academic interviews with firsthand accounts of divine revelation to bring fresh urgency to the teachings of the world's major religions. Buddhist, Jew, Muslim, Hindi or Christian, the message is the same: spread love, reject hate, walk in the light, avoid the dark, listen to the angels, ignore the demons. The simplest choices you'll ever make lead to the hardest path you'll ever walk. Visit the Official Website or...

Into the Mystic

Barbara Brodsky is a channel: the passage through which Aaron, a spiritual being of light and pure energy, enters our world. Into the Mystic is their story: a journey to the very core of their beings, a place where all distinctions between the two disappear and only love remains. Into the Mystic is our story, too: an examination of the divine spark that resides in each of us. The film combines first hand accounts of mystical experience with academic interviews and ultimately brings us face-to-face with Aaron himself as he reveals the incredible truth about the nature of our existence.

Absinthe

The definitive film on history's most notorious drink. Was it ambrosia or poison? Artistic muse or ticket to madness and death? There is a tremendous fascination with absinthe, yet few truly know of its rich history. Absinthe: A Documentary brings the Green Fairy out of her clouded past where, for one hundred years, her fabled effects and demonized reputation have excited equal doses of admiration and loathing. The film traces absinthe from its birth in Switzerland in 1787, through its rise in the chic of Belleoqu, Paris, to its prohibition, and now to the recent worldwide revival. Absinthe's story is put in high relief through interviews with leading historians, authors, distillers, antiques collectors, and fanatics. The cult beverage of bohemian artists has stormed back into fashion; Absinthe: A Documentary clarifies the legend.

BOOKS

Do you read? Yeah? I read, too.

The Cooks

A dash of sex and a pinch of love, The Cooks follows an eclectic group of New Yorkers attempting to create the recipe for a life well lived.

"Facas's charming debut introduces an eclectic cast of characters whose lives intersect at a weekly cooking class in New York City. The book takes place over a single day, and the eight students in renowned French chef John Sebastian's class, and John himself, are all at a crossroads. Facas's wry, matter-of-fact writing style is a delight, and his characters--surprisingly relatable, albeit with a touch of the absurd--are literary amuse-bouches." Publisher's Weekly
