Film: “Freedom & Liberation”
Time: Friday, 27 November 2009, 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Place: Cinema for the Soul, Royal Exchange Building, 32 Bolton Street Newcastle
“Freedom and Liberation” is a film biography of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga meditation. Inspired by her parents and Mahatma Gandhi, Shri Mataji took part in the youth movement working for resistance against the British Empire to obtain freedom for India.
Throughout her entire life, Shri Mataji always kept to her vision, one which goes beyond the political freedom of her motherland India, to a vision of inner freedom and transformation of each individual. This vision would take her to the five continents so that she could talk with ordinary people about her new method of meditation.
“Freedom and Liberation” is the work of young director, Carolin Dassel, who shows the many stages of Shri Mataji’s adventurous life in a very subtle way. The timeless impressions, beautiful music, original locations and archival material combine to produce an atmosphere of meditative authenticity.
The evening will conclude with a brief meditation session.
7:15pm: Doors open and live music
7:45pm: Screening of “Freedom & Liberation”
9:15pm: Brief meditation session
Free admission. No booking is required.
We look forward to seeing you at the cinema!
