But when a stroke sidelines Nana, Sebastian begins sneaking around with Jared, a chain-smoking, punk-obsessed 16-year-old with a heart transplant who lives in the suburbs with his bible-thumping single father Alan and teenage sister Meredith. Sebastian and Jared form a band, and with his Nana’s dreams, his first real friendship, and a church talent show at stake, Sebastian must decide if he wants to become the next Buckminster Fuller, the next Sid Vicious, or something else entirely.

752 – Hereditary (2018)

timespace coordinates: 2010’s Utah599b083be7813b0734b5b251f1fd5688Hereditary is a 2018 American horror film written and directed by Ari Aster, in his feature directorial debut. It stars Toni ColletteAlex WolffMilly ShapiroAnn Dowd, and Gabriel Byrne, and follows a family haunted after the death of their secretive grandmother. Ari was influenced by the film The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover (1989).

During pre-production, writer-director Ari Aster often referred to the film not as a horror film but rather “a tragedy that curdles into a nightmare.” All interiors (including both versions of the treehouse) were built from scratch on a sound stage. Since each of the rooms was built on a stage, walls could be removed to shoot scenes at a much greater distance than a practical location would allow, creating the dollhouse aesthetic of the film.

750 – Rudolf Steiner and the Science of Spiritual Realities (1991 documentary)

rudolf-steiner-hopeDr. Rudolf Steiner‘s fundamental gift to mankind was the creation of the science of spirit known as anthroposophy, from the Greek “anthropos,” or man, and “sophia,” or wisdom.

This one hour television documentary takes us on a fascinating journey into the realms just beyond our five senses. Rudolf Steiner not only found how to experience these areas directly, in a very safe and methodical manner, but he also developed specific techniques which, if utilized in the right way and with the proper intention, enable the individual to have insight into the spiritual realities.

In addition to learning of this extraordinary individuality, we meet some of the men and women who are utilizing the impulses brought by Dr. Steiner to expand and enhance their specific vocations in very practical ways, e.g. education, agriculture, medicine, mathematics, architecture, the arts, +working with retarded children and adults.
