The Shape of Now DVD
When I watched The Shape of Now DVD, I was fascinated by the whole idea of it. The film addresses the need for a common understanding of the facts, so that we can reconcile and heal. Without this, moving forward in a positive direction can be impossible.
The film is specifically about the Colombian Civil War, and the road to recovery after the 50 year long war. However, the ideas presented in the film have applications that can be applied to other events.
Our own experiences and perceptions impact our present views, so it’s important to interpret facts accurately and with empathy.
The Colombian story of The Shape of Now is interesting in and of itself, but will impact your thinking more broadly.
