The Experience of Light (22 min.)

OSCAR-nominated, Emmy-winning filmmaker
DOROTHY FADIMAN

Produced by
Author/publisher
MICHAEL WIESE

 
   

At a time when inter-cultural understanding is increasingly fragile,
RADIANCE affirms the presence of a universally shared experience.
Striking natural images, unusual special effects, and poetic narration
are woven together with a wide range of musical selections to develop
an evocative documentary on light, from the physical to the metaphysical.

Through religion, philosophy, art, and architecture, RADIANCE documents
the story of light as a universal symbol of life to people from many cultures.
Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism, plus images from
Pagan rituals and ancient Egypt are intricately related. This inspiring film
invites the viewer to see how images of light continue through ancient
cultures into the present, connecting the visions and values
of people around the world.


"...a positive affirmation of the luminosity of life."  BOOKLIST

"Light is construed broadly here, not from the confines of any particular discipline,
yet bringing in aspects of art, religion, mysticism, cosmology, architecture and poetry.
The power, appropriateness and impact of the cinematography is striking.
This film serves as a foundation of shared experience."
  FILM NEWS MAGAZINE

"A sumptuous feast of visuals and music reveals the multiple facets of light
which the sensitive narration weaves into a universal totality."

Review Journal of the AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION

"This is truly an experience of beauty that offers a unique message to each viewer."
RELIGION TEACHER'S JOURNAL (A non-denominational educational resource)

"The message that we are all radiant beings reaches more than the intellect --
it rushes directly to the heart."
 NEW AGE JOURNAL

"Beautifully crafted, personal and profound. It was for me a totally spiritual experience."
COLIN HIGGINS (1941 -1988) Screenwriter/Director Harold & Maude and Nine to Five
