Archives Available on VoiceAmerica 7th Wave Channel

Movies are changing the way we think, live and dream. “Spirit of Film: Conversations” with Randall Libero showcases the resurgence of modern movies beyond traditional Hollywood fare; those with a strong social conscience, a search for values and meaning, and a willingness to take risks. The program explores the personal and artistic journeys of today’s independent and visionary filmmakers who are ‘breaking the mold’ and communicating their message by using new methods of distribution available in the New Media culture to make an impact. The program celebrates motion picture’s unique magic power to move us emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually in this New Era of ‘Visionary Entertainment’; as new methods of storytelling, art, technology, and movie distribution are converging.
