"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino"

Tuesday, August 5 at 6:30pm

An inspirational, emotionally intimate documentary film revealing the heart centered, celestially guided life-ways of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition, one of our planet's few remaining uninterrupted wisdom lineages.


Filmed on location in the Peruvian highlands, this unprecedented documentary film takes us on a journey into the heart of an ancient earth-keeping culture to experience a way of life that is at once practical and mystical. It presents universally applicable insights into a state of being based on loving kindness, unconditional reciprocity, sustainability and the sanctity of daily life - the foundations of what is known as The Living Peace.


Like the groundbreaking films Koyaanisqatsi and BarakaWisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino is not narrated. As such, viewers receive a direct, unmediated experience of living with the Paqos, witnessing their heart-based intelligence and being touched by their active, reciprocal relationships with the conscious life force inherent within all aspects of the natural world.

An Evening with Filmmaker
Jesse Kreitzer

Benefit for "Black Canaries"
An MFA Thesis Film

Wednesday, August 6 at 6:30pm

New England Emmy® award-winning filmmaker and current UIowa graduate student Jesse Kreitzer will be screening his narrative and documentary films on Wednesday, August 6 at 6pm. The event is free and open to the public. Donations are encouraged.


Jesse Kreitzer is a filmmaker from Vermont whose creative interests include rural storytelling, ancestry and acts of compassion. Primarily working in narrative and documentary modes of cinema, Kreitzer's interest in rural filmmaking derives from a personal desire to restore his own fractured ties with the land.


Kreitzer will discuss his upcoming thesis Black Canaries, an early 1900s coal mining folktale inspired by his maternal ancestors. The screening includes a spirited reimagining of folklorist Alan Lomax's 1941 journey through the Mississippi Delta, the personal story of a frame-by-frame restoration of a decayed 8mm family film, and a portrait of Boston #1 amateur celebrity autograph hound, amongst others.
