Winner of The Public Choice Award at the 10th International Large Format Film festival in Paris, Mystic India is an epic journey into the land and soul of India. It takes the viewer through spectacular scenes from the icy peaks of the Himalayas to the cool blue Lake Mansarovar, into the wild jungles of the Sunderbans and the forests of Assam, through barren deserts and the silent shores of South India. India’s silent spirituality makes her a mystic land of meditation, contemplation and enlightenment. The film’s breathtaking visuals describe a unique journey across India through the eyes of an 11 year-old child-yogi, Nilkanth. This is his true story.

Starting in 1792, Nilkanth embarked on a spiritual quest, journeying 7,500 miles for seven years through the length and breadth of India. Through the telling of his story of inspiration, the film explores the majesty and mysticism of India’s art and architecture, music and dance, faces and festivals, customs and costumes. Throughout his journey, Nilkanth conveyed profound messages of love, service and harmony; expressing one of India’s greatest gifts to the world — its unity in diversity.

Special Features:
– 108 min. Making of Mystic India documentary
– Trailers
– Numerous exclusive photographs

Read Review
“Fifty million stars in our galaxy have the potential of supporting life forms capable of traveling to other planets,” says world-renowned authority Erich von Daniken, whose film version of his best- selling book, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, gives stunning visual proof that some form of life from outer space landed on Earth centuries ago. It took five years for von Daniken to document, on film, the physical evidence of visits by galactic travelers who came to Earth. Just what they did here and the influences they left behind is the core of the film. In search of basic truths, the film, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, takes the viewer into the far reaches of underground caves and tombs, and to the tops of desolate mountains on every major continent to show the evidence von Daniken has been collecting. Although this controversial film may provide the answers to age old mysteries, it may be the beginning of an entirely new set of questions. Bonus Features: Scene Selection, Photo Gallery, Bio on Erich von Daniken, Trailer. Specs: DVD5; Dolby Digital Mono; 90 minutes; Color; 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA – G; Year – 1972.

65. Fireplace DVD: Real Wood Burning Fire (Anamorphic – FullScreen Edition)

by: Plasma Candy
Release date: Jan 01, 2008
Run Time: 30 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
After being disappointed with many of the Fireplace DVDs out on the market that we tested, we were inspired to create a fireplace DVD that:

1. Used a real wood burning fire (not gas).

2. Was lit properly so that the fire didn’t overexpose the shot.

3. A fire that filled the entire screen of a wide screen television as well as a regularly formatted TV.

4. Had no cheesy hearths to distract from the fire’s magnificence.

5. Allowed the viewer to control what stage of the fire they wanted to see.

We believe that addressing these issues with a professional DVD has allowed us to create the best virtual fireplace available.

There are two basic aspect ratios 16:9 (widescreen) and 4:3 (standard) so look for these while you are searching your DVD player’s menu. We shot the DVD in Anamorphic, which will allow it to switch between 16:9 and 4:3 formats without any issues.

If you are getting the black bars at the top and bottom of your TV screen, you will need to access your dvd player’s menu (found on the remote). On your DVD player menu there should be an option to change the format (aspect ratio) so that the DVD displays properly on your screen without the black bars. This is how our DVDs are able to play on both widescreen and regularly formatted TVs.

This DVD has been tested in a wide variety of widescreen and standard screen TVs and displays full screen on both TV formats.

Is there a connection? Are we seeing a connection between our ancient past and what is happening today? Were huge stones simply levitated into position, and do we have any modern evidence that such a thing may have been possible? WATCHERS 8 explores how today’s UFO phenomena and the ancient evidence in Peru may be connected. We’ll also continue with our story in WATCHERS 7 with Bill’s implant. We will go into surgery and watch the incredible details where a simple prayer seemed to defy logic. No one could have known that this would be Dr. Roger Leir’s last “alien” surgical procedure.
You’ll see some of the latest UFO footage, including infrared photography showing light formations flying overhead. Could they be preparing for something? Gary Stearman and Paul McGuire weigh in. You’ll hear from Captain Robert Salas about how a glowing red UFO disabled the nuclear missiles at the base he commanded, and at others-revealing newly declassified information from the Air Force. Then, we’ll go back to Peru and unwrap a baby mummy skull. The results were astonishing. Were there creatures that roamed this earth that weren’t fully human? Do hybrids walk among us?

Come onboard the magnificent Norwegian square-rigger as it sails its spectacular 17,000 mile journey, manned by a crew of young sailors-in-training, all photographed in the widescreen splendor of Cinemiracle, Cinerama s only true competitor to thrill 1950 s audiences by sheer size and clarity. Now digitally remastered in the unique SmileBox curved screen simulation, the color, the music, and the true artistry of this classic are reborn. Embarking from Oslo, Norway, the ship sets out across the Atlantic with a storm-tossed stop in Madeira, where New Year s festivities entice the young crewmen to enjoy Portuguese musical celebrations and heart racing rides in basket sleds down steep cobblestone streets. After that, it is on to Willemstad, Curacao, where the young sailors take part in Dutch festivities. They catch a courtyard performance of Pablo Casals in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, they re greeted by native steel bands and Calypso singers. By the time they arrive in New York, the Cinemiracle cameras offer a kaleidoscopic treat of color and sound created by famed photographer Arthur Weegee Fellig. A later encounter with the U.S. Navy Task Force makes for a grand promenade of ships, and when underwater shots of frogmen and a submarine emerge from the depths to reveal the Windjammer on the open sea, Cinemiracle becomes the true star of this breathtaking story. Morton Gould s top-notch score, along with a fine variety of music throughout the picture, sounds perfect in Cinemiracle s 7-channel sound recording. Seen digitally, the film hasn t looked and sounded as good since its original theatrical engagements, over 50 years ago. BONUS FEATURES The WINDJAMMER Voyage: A Cinemiracle Adventure (2012) A new documentary by historian David Strohmaier on the film s original production – 56 min. WINDJAMMER Gets A Facelift featuring before and after demos on the film s remastering – 13 min. The WINDJAMMER Breakdown Reel – 14 min.

70. Maynard Dixon: Art And Spirit

Read Review
MAYNARD DIXON: Art and Spirit is a feature length documentary that profiles the breathtaking art and complex life of artist, Maynard Dixon (1875-1946). The desert was Dixon’s sanctuary, a timeless place where he could forget the hurried pace of his life in San Francisco. He would often leave his wife and children, his paying work in the city, and his friends in the bohemian art scene for months of solitary searching in the American West. Under the desert stars, Dixon wrote poetry. Under the desert sun, Dixon painted, sketched and drew. His travels took him to the camps and reservations of the Hopi and Navajo, where he was welcomed with reverence for his talent with pencil, crayon and paint. He lived with the Native Americans and his art became a language between two cultures. ”That sense of sun and space and silence – of serenity – of strength and freedom – if I can interpret that with what I can master of technical requirements, I will have reached the best of my endeavor,” Dixon wrote.

Maynard Dixon: Art and Spirit reveals the rich canvas of his life through insightful interviews with his family, friends and members of the art community. Dixon’s sons, Daniel and John, share intimate recollections of their parent’s complex relationship. Dixon’s friends, artists Ray Strong and Milford Zornes, recall the unique character of Maynard Dixon. The film is enriched with over four-hundred Dixon paintings and drawings, portraits of Dixon taken by his lifelong friend, Ansel Adams and family photographs and rare audio by his second wife, celebrated photographer, Dorothea Lange. Dixon biographers, Donald J. Hagerty and Linda Jones Gibbs share their expertise on the personal struggles that Dixon overcame to continue his quest to record the vanishing West. Film locations include Montana, Utah, Arizona, California and New Mexico, bringing Dixon’s paintings and drawings to life in the breathtaking panoramas of the land that he loved so deeply.

Release date: Nov 12, 2009
Run Time: 180 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)

Read Review
A Lamp in the Dark is an exciting documentary that shows the intriguing history of the Bible. Enter into a world of saints and martyrs battling against spies, assassins, and wolves in sheep’s clothing. Through the Middle Ages, the popes and Inquisition forbade biblical translation, threatening imprisonment and death to those who disobeyed. Learn the lives of men like John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, William Tyndale, Myles Coverdale and others, who hazarded their lives to communicate the Bible in languages people could understand. With the Fall of Constantinople, ancient Greek manuscripts came into Europe, and with them, the clear streams of understanding that would bring about the Protestant Reformation. But what is little known is that Rome launched a Counter Reformation with the intent of destroying all the works of the Reformers. Could this be the key to the “untold” history of the Bible? And is it possible that this ancient war on the Word of God continues to this day?

Just as the advertising industry uses hypnosis and psychology to sell you their products. Are movie producers using these same tactics to sell you a belief system?
