Description

We invite you to join the Trudeau Centre for Peace, Conflict and Justice for a screening of Rome-based director, Thomas Torelli’s documentary, Another World/Un Altro Mondo. A panel discussion and Q & A session with Thomas Torrelli will follow the screening.

ANOTHER WORLD is a feature documentary about mankind’s journey to discover our true force and who we truly are, challenging the modern view of the world and reconsidering the world view and value systems of ancient societies such as the indigenous Americans. It’s a quest through science and consciousness, individual and planetary, exploring our relationships with ourselves, the world around us and the universe as a whole. It demonstrates how connected we really all are, as best expressed in the Mayan greeting In Lak’ech, which means “I am another yourself.” It also demonstrates just how unnatural the sense of separation that characterizes much of modern thought really is as opposed to the understanding of unity and oneness found in many ancient traditions.

Above all it is a transcendental pilgrimage of repossession and empowerment, affirming our place in the universe and asserting mankind as a conscious mankind with real power as individuals and as a collective to create our reality, leaving us with a message that will not only open our eyes, but will hopefully stimulate everyone into generating a better and brighter tomorrow for the benefit of present and future generations.

Thomas Torelli is an award-winning Italian independent director and producer best known for compelling socially conscious documentaries. His past work includes: ZERO: An Investigation into 9/11 (2007) and Sangue e Cemento (2009). In 2014 he directed and produced the documentary film that revolutionized the concept of independent distribution in Italy: Another World. His latest work includes Food ReLOVution (2017), which analyzes the effects of the meat industry, Choose Love (2018), about the importance of choosing love in every gesture. He is currently the creative force behind UAM.TV, his newly launched independent web television whose intent is to contribute to the creation of a better social and cultural model: another world.
