The film was inspired by the New Story Summit at the Findhorn Foundation: a sold-out multicultural, multigenerational enquiry into a new story for humanity, attended by change makers and activists from over 50 countries. A number of professional filmmakers gifted their skills during the summit and conducted a series of interviews with key speakers, each carrying a thread of the new story.
This feature length film brings together excerpts from some of these inspiring interviews, along with key moments from the summit itself. It is intended as a tool to inspire and inform, to foster further enquiry, and to serve as a call to action in service to a better world.
The film is a beautifully and sensitively woven tapestry of the rich diversity that is the human family. Featuring live event coverage and interviews on the essential topics of our time: from cosmology to ecology, from ancient wisdom to current thinking, from leadership to governance, from economy to social justice, from education to initiation, from community to sustainability.
Captured through the lens of both our frailty and our wisdom, our pain and our joy, this enquiry into a new story for humanity offers a gateway into the evolutionary consciousness that will propel us as a species to recognise and embody our interdependence in harmony with the planet and in partnership with all life.
The film has been produced entirely on the basis of gift economy, as was the summit itself, and is being offered online as our gift to you. A labour of love, the production of the film would not have been possible were it not for the generous gifting of summiteers. We are deeply appreciative of the talents, skills, abilities, creativity, wisdom, open-heartedness and love of all those who contributed. We are also grateful for the presence of all those who attended the summit and for their ongoing work in the world in accelerating a new story for humanity to live into.
In honour all those who made the film possible, we invite you to participate in our Live Premiere, the date of which will be announced shortly.
The film will premiere here at Findhorn in the Universal Hall, the home of the summit, and be live streamed around the world. The intent is that we come together wherever we are on the planet to view the film as a global family of change makers. Over 50 countries were represented at the summit and we’d love to know that you are each tuning in, all over the globe, to watch the film with us and join in our post-film discussion.
