'The Invocation' is a feature documentary about the notions of 'God' and “Peace” around the World and through Religion, Spirituality, Science, History, Politics and Arts. The goal is to show that looking for God leads to finding Mankind. It’s an invitation to elevate our school of thinking and change our code of acting with each other.
There are people who choose to believe, others who choose not to believe and others, like I, who chose not to choose in order to keep the exploration and the debate going. It's really ultimately a movie not geared at determining whether there is “a God', 'Being', 'Energy', or whatever the name given but to help people understand there is a need to go beyond our differences. It's a message of Peace, Unity and Connectivity. It is an urgent mission in view of the planet in bad health and the many sufferings of the world population.
Let yourself be enlightened by the wise points of views of leaders such as His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, Desmond Tutu, Oliver Stone, Mark Walhberg, Stewart Copeland and so many more. Maybe at the end will we understand and accept that we are: One People, One Planet, One Universe and One Beyond.
Vegetarians of Central Florida will also have a booth at the Global Peace Film Festival Street Fair on Sunday, September 19 from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
