The Beauty, Love and Power of Film

Hello Friends:

Are you a film fan? Do you love cinema? I love film or la película. It is a beautiful way of telling stories. And it is very powerful.

Here is an awesome TED Talk on how films can challenge, inspire and transform society. I have really enjoyed the talk and I am positive that you too will enjoy it.

Per TED:

Movies have the power to create a shared narrative experience and to shape memories and worldviews. British film director Beeban Kidron invokes iconic film scenes—from Miracle in Milan to Boyz n the Hood—as she shows how her group FILMCLUB shares great films with kids.

Beeban Kidron directed Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit. She also cofounded FILMCLUB, a charity for students devoted to the art of storytelling through film.

Enjoy! 🙂

Human beings have always told their histories and truths through parable and fable. We are inveterate storytellers. —Beeban Kidron
