Time Is Art (2015)
SyncLife1320 presents a FREE networking reception and community screening of the acclaimed documentary, Time Is Art: Synchronicity and the Collective Dream.
This inspiring film follows an aspiring writer who is compelled to make sense of the mysterious and powerful energy she felt at her aunt’s deathbed. A series of strange coincidences leads her on an exploration of synchronicity – the concept that everything is interconnected, and that time is not so much a chronology as it is an infinite cycle. Considering herself something of a skeptic, she treads the fine line between nervous breakdown and ecstatic revelation as she seeks out guides in her search for answers. Together, they explore a reality where time is transformed from a unit that can be measured and commodified -“Time is money”- to an experience of oneness with the natural rhythms of nature and the universe. It is here that the writer discovers that time is, in fact, art.
Inspired by acclaimed & visionary author José Argüelles’ studies in ancient indigenous wisdom and presented as a cinematic meditation along the lines of Waking Life and Samsara, Time Is Art takes an experimental approach that allows us to experience reality as Jennifer begins to see it – one less concerned with linear storytelling, and more open to the cyclical patterns of nature, the hidden meanings of symbols, and the dreamlike overlapping of people, places, and moments. Compelling conversations with fellow seekers Toko-Pa Turner, Richard Tarnas, Amy Lansky, Graham Hancock, Daniel Pinchbeck and Rupert Sheldrake as well as artists and activists guide us through the underlying premise of the film: perhaps we can tap into a way of being that is not ruled by a finite sense of time, but rather by the ability to live in harmony with the true creative nature of our existence.
This event is FREE and open to the public. No tickets are needed.
The pre-film reception begins at 6:00pm. Following the 7:30pm screening, please stay for a panel discussion and audience Q&A with the filmmakers, and an optional sound bath experience that will begin at 9:3opm (suggested sound bath donation is $20).
