The Twelve: A Tale of Wisdom & Unity (2019)

3

“The Twelve” tells the story of twelve spiritual Elders from around the globe who gather at the United Nations in New York to create a unique ritual for Humankind and planet Earth. By interviewing each one of them in their home environments, the film is told exclusively through the voices of these elders. They give an unprecedented insight into their knowledge, traditions and rituals. Each of the twelve share a long forgotten wisdom and knowing of our eternal and complex connection with Nature and all of humanity, reminding us what it means to be human and how to live in harmony with each other and with Nature.

We follow the elders as they travel for the first time to New York, and witness the powerful energy of their three day reunion in New York. Their messages are unified in what needs to be done to change the course our planet is taking. The Twelve are from Australia, Alaska, Brazil, Botswana, Colombia, Gabon, Japan, Nepal, Mexico and Siberia.

The Twelve is available to download in English and to stream and download in 7 other languages including French, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Arabic under https://lecielfoundation.com/download-the-twelve/ 

The filmmakers have kindly made "The Twelve" available for free, so that the message of the elders can reach the widest audience possible. If you'd like to show your thanks, you can donate here or via their Patreon campaign. Any amount, from $2 to $20, means a lot.  - Films For Action

Films For Action is a 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 healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide free access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 20 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a very, very tiny Netflix for world changers, but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!

Cheers,  Tim Hjersted
