Under the Stars

Under the Stars

When did you last lie still as still can be, and breathe in the stars? For they sit patiently each night, waiting for you to share the honesty of your dreams.

The State Of Not Knowing

The State Of Not Knowing

‘I can’t give you anything that you don’t already have.’ This statement is important, and this podcast explores this and the uncomfortable edges that surround it. If the work of Soul Biographies is interesting to you, this delves deeply into its very nature.

What On Earth

What On Earth

‘What on earth are you doing here?’ came the voice. ‘I don’t know. i just don’t know’ came his answer. ‘What on earth are you doing here, on earth?’ came the voice again.

The Use Of You

The Use Of You

What came was not a response to a question. It was a response to stillness. That is important to know. It is the common experience in all of these films. “One of the greatest gifts I’ve been given is cancer. On days like today even my hair hurts. I’ve got a couple of other diseases, I’m like a walking miracle today. I often ask – don’t let the words come from me, let them come from somewhere else.”

No Map

No Map

‘… you think you have a map in your hand that’s going to guide you to where you need to go. And as you walk along you realize the map you’re holding isn’t helping. It’s somebody else’s map. It’s somebody else’s markings on it.’

On the Edge of Life and Death

On the Edge of Life and Death

The Hospice Community at Joseph’s House in Washington DC hold the belief that no one should live, or die alone. Welcome to ‘On the Edge of Life and Death’. It’s the film title, because it is just that.

Lighter, or Darker

Lighter, or Darker

A film made originally to open a Hollywood Movement started by Jim Carrey, Eckhart Tolle and John Raatz. Addressing the responsibility of the media in this World. In poetic fashion as you might expect.

A Note From Behind The Camera

A Note From Behind The Camera

From a palpable and utter stillness, it is as if the subject ‘is being spoken’. They are not speaking ‘to’ or ‘at’ the world in expectation of something in return, as is so often the case. Here, there is nowhere to hide. Here there is no need to hide. Here there is the letting go of control. The control that kept us from seeing one another.

The Entrance Hall

The Entrance Hall

I’m in an entrance hall. And I look towards the furthest doorway. I see her. She looks up. And immediately casts her eyes downwards. She assumes that I can see her. I can. But what she believes I can see, she is ashamed of. She doesn’t wish for it to be seen.

A Window to the Soul

A Window to the Soul

Might the eyes really be a window to the soul? And if so, what then? Filmed in unusual fashion for the early days of Soul Biographies. But now I have come to understand the importance of patience, stillness and unflinching human contact. The film asks if you are able to see beyond your assumptions.
