What if a former Olympic medic’s theory of physics, drawn from observation of the human body under stress, could not only revolutionize the treatment of chronic disease but also rewrite the rules of science by proposing that matter, instead of being made up of atoms, is made of waves endlessly waving within waves? Welcome to the pulsing, patterned, boundary-dissolving universe of visionary medical maverick Dr. Irving Dardik who proposes a paradigm shift in physics to heal the world.
In the history of aviation, there have been 14 large commercial plane crashes with one lone survivor. Sole Survivor offers the first glimpse into the lives of four of these sole survivors. There's a misconception that if somebody survives a tragedy, they should feel lucky. Pressure is placed on survivors to move on, to feel grateful for being spared a dire fate without acknowledging the psychological, social, emotional, spiritual and physical ramifications of survival. Through their varying experiences yet similar reflections, Sole Survivor puts a face on survivorship, underscoring the fact that survivors are victims too.
“Some Kind of Spark,” is a feature-length documentary that follows at risk inner-city kids through the Music Advancement Program at The Juilliard School. Independently produced and directed by Plow Productions—the only production company to have been granted unfettered access to the program—the film is an intimate look behind the scenes, from auditions to recitals, at home and in school—as the students are exposed to, and inspired by, the profound impact of music. Shot in HD over 2 years, the film will serve as an entertaining and educational reminder of the power and importance music plays in all of our lives.
