LOVE THY NATURE
2014, Tugg, 76 min, Dir: Sylvie Rokab

This award-winning documentary points to how deeply we’ve lost touch with nature – and takes us on a mesmerizing cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. The narrator is Liam Neeson, serving as the voice of “Sapiens” (our collective humankind) who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we have transcended nature. Yet experts uncover how a new era of nature connection might just be dawning: “Biomimicry” scientists look to the natural world for the most brilliant cutting-edge inventions, ecologists unveil how nature restores our communities, and doctors are finding new ways in which nature heals the body, mind and brain.


A MONSTER CALLS
2016, Focus Features, 108 min, USA/Spain, Dir: J.A. Bayona

At the center of this visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (THE IMPOSSIBLE) is 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall). With a terminally ill mother (Felicity Jones), a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) and bullying classmates, it seems the world has turned against the boy. But Conor finds an unlikely ally when an ancient Monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) appears at his bedroom window to guide him on a journey of courage, faith and truth. “A sensitive and beautifully made lesson in the limits and power of storytelling.” - John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.
