Part II of The Bloom explores how Transformational Festivals have become incubators and spaces for “Practicing The New World”, where the festivals are produced using a model of CO-CREATION, utilizing an ethos of PARTICIPATION to create these remarkable realities and MODELLING these life-altering experiences into ongoing projects back in their communities.

THE BLOOM: A JOURNEY THROUGH TRANSFORMATIONAL FESTIVALS

In a world increasingly steeped in crisis, where can we find signs of hope for our collective future? 

A 4-part documentary mini-series, The Bloom chronicles the global movement emerging through Transformational Festivals, where participants co-create remarkable realities that embrace a life-affirming and evolutionaryethos as a collective response to our contemporary predicaments. 

Travelling with director/host Jeet-Kei Leung, The Bloom captures the most inspirational festivals on the planet and insights from participants at all levels of the experience. In vivid colour and detail, The Bloom reveals a blossoming renaissance of creative energy, which is changing people’s lives to align with their sense of purpose and passion, and affirming our ultimate connectedness and capacity to create the world we wish to live in. 

The results may be surprising and offer a glimpse of what happens when our collective creative potential becomes truly unleashed.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
