AIMS for 2011 - our DIVINE WATER film team is very busy in the launch of Flowform International Ltd in Europe. Once this has been seen through we will be back to work on the film to complete the next stage. Thank you all those who have supported us - we are not going away and will most certainly complete this special and unique project.
During 2010 - completed film planning and preparations for active filming and further fundraising. We will be making the film in five topic sections, each one complete in itself, and being released via public media step by step. Then after that we will edit it into the one complete film.
November 2009 - US$5,000 funding granted by Panta Rhea Foundation via Rudolf Steiner Foundation in San Francisco to complete the Stage One preparation of our film. Thank you very much!
Interest from Spiritual Theatre network in USA in our film - from the introductory trailer. They remain interested in reviewing the final film when it is done.
Sunday, May 31, 2009 - Kathleen Abel attended the Mitchell Block and Eva Orner documentary making seminar in Santa Monica, CA. It was a great learning experience, preparing us for new methods of designing and marketing the film to be most effective in its outreach message.
May, 2009 - discussions with Jivanmukta Swami Ganapati, the Siddha Shiva master of Siddha Shiva International, also known in the film world previously as the famous producer and director Armondo Acosta, resulted in us being offered filming and editing space at his Academy of Film and The Arts in Ghent, Belgium, for which we are very grateful.
