    Jin Ju Lee / Arts in Film, Biography, Documentary, EcoCinema, Woman Filmmaker / USA / 2015 / Art, Biography, Buddhism, Social Issues / 80 mins
    A lyrical film portrait of photographer Philip Perkis, who penetrates life's essential questions through his 60 years working in black and white photography. From childhood he had exceptional vision, but also severe learning disabilities. Made by his former student and initially inspired by his small, poetic book "Teaching Photography: Notes Assembled," the film is built around this distillation of his experiences and his photography. It also explores the intimate, but respectful—and often playful—relationship between teacher and student.

    All of life’s key elements – Love, Marriage, Work, Freedom – get their due as top animation directors from around the world pitch in to create a fresh fantasia out of celebrated Lebanese-American author Kahlil Gibran’s celebrated poems in his international best seller THE PROPHET. Culmination of 4 years of work by producer Salma Hayek. A dissident being kept under house arrest recounts valuable lessons in a series of vignettes while a mischievous young woman causes havoc in the community. Set in a Mediterranean seaside village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra (Quvenzhané Wallis), out of trouble. A gem of a film to see on the big screen.
