The essence of Theosophy is the perfect harmonizing 
of the divine with the human in Man.
H.P. Blavatsky

Film is without question the medium of our times. Producer David Putnam (Chariots of Fire, the Mission) once said, “If films were what they might be, there would be no need to go to church.” Four films will be screened – not for entertainment alone — but as a catalyst to explore universal facets of human experience and philosophical themes. Catherine will introduce each film briefly. After screening an open dialogue will follow.
