I, Psychopath

"The vast majority of psychopaths, like an iceberg, are under the water and like an iceberg, they are inert; they do nothing, they're just there. They torment the spouse by being un-empathetic, but they don't beat her or kill her. They bully co-workers, but they don't burn down the office. They are not dramatic. They are pernicious. Most psychopaths are subtle. They are more like poison than the knife and they are more like slow working poison than cyanide." –Sam Vaknin, self-aware psychopath Psychopaths...we usually only know them from Hollywood movies. We never expect them to enter our real life. But, the psychopath is closer than you think. Experts believe their number to be as high as one in a hundred. ...

Other Worlds (D’autres Mondes)

"It is somewhat presumptuous to disdain or condemn as fake that which does not appear likely." –Montaigne This documentary film will be the testimony of a personal and subjective adventure. It will also show the dangers and risks involved in Shamanism: (1) losing yourself in the light or the darkness of your recently awakened emotions or (2) misinterpreting the feelings or visions. This could lead to schizophrenia in the event these journeys not be guided by competent Shamans or compliant with an unyielding discipline and strict diet. The film will primarily show the therapeutic power of the Shamans and their plants. This power is a type of ancestral psychoanalysis or human psychotherapy backed by 4,000 years of experience and practice. The film ...

Food Matters

"Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food." –Hippocrates With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what's wrong with our malnourished bodies, it's no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide 'sickness industry' and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally. "With access to better information people invariably make better choices for their health..." In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several leading experts in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification ...

Flow – For Love of Water

"Thousands have lived without love, not one without water." –W.H.Auden Irena Salina's award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis. Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.

Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and ...
