Bethel Cinema and Cadiz partners with the Housatonic Valley Cultural Alliance to present The Sacred Science, directed by local filmmakers from Brookfield, CT Dan Bailey and Nick Polizzi on May 8, 2012 at 6:30pm. Special guests include First Selectman, Matt Knickerbocker and Dan Bailey, who will be available for a Q & A immediately following the film.
Witness the story of eight brave souls as they leave the developed world behind in search of deeper answers. Living in seclusion in the heart of the Amazon jungle, these men and women take part in the powerful healing practices of Peru’s indigenous medicine men, working with centuries-old plant remedies and spiritual disciplines. In their most desperate hour, these patients are forced to confront not only their physical ailments, but their own spiritual and psychological barriers in the process. Five will return with real results, two will return disappointed, and one won’t come back at all.
The event begins with a private reception for guests in the large theater with food and wine provided by Cadiz. Proceeds will benefit HVCA – a wonderful community organization that works tirelessly to support the local cultural arts community!
