PREMIER OF THE FILM AGNIYOGANA AT IYF 2020!

A documentary by Emma Balnaves exploring the true potential of the ancient yogic path in the modern world

 

AGNIYOGANA is a meditative inquiry into the lost art of classical Hatha Yoga.

Offering an experiential collage of action and stillness, light and darkness, sound and silence, AGNIYOGANA explores the richness of traditional Hatha Yoga teachings and the deeply connected states of heart, mind, and freedom these practices deliver to sincere truth seekers.

AGNIYOGANA takes the viewer on a journey through time and space to rediscover the inner dimensions of Hatha Yoga and reconnect the human spirit to the true meaning of “yug,” the connecting root of all yogas.

SCREENING OF THE FILM MANTRA – SOUNDS INTO SILENCE AT IYF 2020!

A film about music, meditation and chanting

 

A journey within and at the same time a world-wide movement, MANTRA- SOUNDS INTO SILENCE shows how effective harmonious sounds can be in our noisy world of non-stop communication. In search of concentration, community and connection, thousands of people all over the world are turning to an ancient type of human gathering – ‘Kirtan’, originally from India, this traditional form of chanting was first used in the West as a musical background for Yoga classes. But its power is such that it has now spread to a far wider public – as far as Grammy nominations for the stars of the scene such as Deva Premal & Miten, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Jai Uttal and Dave Stringer.

At concerts and festivals as well as in daily life, and at unusual locations such as San Quentin Prison near San Francisco, MANTRA-SOUNDS INTO SILENCE shows how communal chanting can dissolve walls between people and help them find themselves, and all through ravishing visual images and music that carries you away. It’s a film free of esoteric mumbo jumbo, and full of passionate enthusiasm for life.

In Georgia Wyss’ documentary the following artists make an appearance Deva Premal & Miten, Manose, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Jai Uttal, MC Yogi, Lama Gyurme & Jean-Philippe Rykiel, C.C. White, Dave Stringer, Mirabai Ceiba, Gaura Vani und Nina Rao.
