“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing or rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” – Rumi
As we were pulling the many threads of the short film Hope & Resilience together we’d be asked questions like – “who’s your target market?” and “where will it be distributed, and how, and when?” We’d sheepishly laugh and explain, “we’re not really sure!” and “we simply want to tap into some knowledge around hope and resilience through the eyes of others and see where it goes.“
Adding to our Rumi insight, he asks “How could you reach the pearl by only looking at the sea? If you seek the pearl, be a diver.”
This short film, like the development of a pearl, was formed layer by layer in creative collaboration. We have taken what was first an irritation and intrusion (the global awakening) and used it to frame these changes around our values to reveal beauty, brilliance and wisdom – with space for you to join as we shift our collective paradigm, together.
We hope to inspire and invite you to take a deep dive with us to discover ‘new pearls’ in collective pursuit and shared responsibility of Community Safety & Well-Being for all. Enjoy!
