NOMAD, 4min., Lebanon

Directed by Abdulrahman El Abyad, Lynne Zakhour, Tamara Qaddoumi
By the light of fireflies, the whispers of mythical snakes, and the ushering of a myriad of under worldly creatures, Nomad illustrates the twist and turns of a journey to the individuation of the spirit. Weaving through realms of light and shadow, where every encounter is alive with meaning, the uprooted protagonist takes us from the depths of her unconscious to the illuminations of the divine feminine.

MORE, 4min., India

Directed by Vaibhav Madhukar Piwlatkar
“A True happiness is not a destination but it is a journey.”
As a human being we always want more and more new things in our life . We think they will give us more happiness. So we keep running behind the new things leaving the one which we have in our hand and at last we realise that it is not the things that give us happiness but the moment we cherish.
But by the time we realise this, our life is at its end. More things will keep evolving in life. They will never stop, but our own life will definitely stop. So enjoy your “now moment” rather than running behind “more”.

AMERICAN CINCINNATUS, 12min,. USA, Documentary

Directed by Matt Wood
Can you imagine Julius Caesar willingly turning back power? History is littered with examples of military men who seized power and were reluctant to give it up. Yet two remarkable individuals, separated by 2,000 years, both made the decision to give up near-absolute authority in favor of life as a citizen. George Washington, America’s first president, and Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, an early Roman statesman, lived dramatically different lives, but both understood the nature and importance of civic virtue. Washington’s decision to not seek a third term as president set a lasting precedent for the peaceful transition of power that endures today.
