Spiritual awakening comes in many shapes and forms, and it is not the preserve of any particular religion. This week, VIFF Vancity Theatre explores how the human experience touches transcendence in ways large and small, through religious faith (Sacred), through heightened states of perception (Icaros: A Vision), through sublime works of art (Following the Ninth), through silence (In Pursuit of Silence) and contemplation (Notes on Blindness; Shadows of Paradise). Finally, in Obit, we consider what it is that makes a life remarkable in retrospect, as seen through the eyes of the obituary writers at the New York Times.

Join us for a free panel discussion of the themes suggested by these films on Friday 28th between the screenings of Sacred and Icaros: A Vision. Panelists to include Rev Gary Paterson from St Andrews Wesley, Kerry Candaele (filmmaker, Following the Ninth), and more to be announced.
