Reconcilliation- hope from the voices of the dipossessed…
I came across some short clips of films made by The Work of the People who are a collection of artists, poets, theologians and film makers in the US. They have loads of great resources that you can buy from their site if you are looking for loops or visuals…
I have picked one of their pieces as it resonated with thoughts about our relationship with the simpler parts of what we are as humans- based around relationships-
Relationships with one another.
Relationships with the land that sustains us.
And perhaps particularly, relationships with those who have been, or would be, our enemies.
The voices of indigenous people have lots to teach us about all of these things. I have posted before about the work of Bob Randall and the concept of Kanyini. You can watch Bob’s wonderful hope filled film here.
But back to the Work of the People clips.
